Melanie is a dedicated member of our practice who strongly believes in our mission to consistently provide genuine, elite care as a team to improve our patients' lives through better hearing. She became a Hearing Instrument Specialist after working with a company that sold and serviced hearing-testing equipment. She realized she was missing the human connection at her job servicing audiometers, so she shadowed an audiologist at the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Audiology Clinic. She was amazed at what the provider got to do each day - help people hear again. She was hooked and worked tirelessly with her mentor to be the excellent provider she is today. She has worked in various centers as a specialist or part owner.
Married with four children, 3 step children and 16 grandchildren. She loves spending time with her husband and family whenever she can. She and her husband love boating, Seadooing, traveling and having monthly family dinners. Melanie knows the importance of being connected to all those that she loves.
When Denice accepted the front desk position with Treasure Valley Hearing & Balance in 2006, she had no idea what she was in for. Years later, after moving from her original position to Operations Manager and Audiologist Technician, she finds herself having the same love for helping people as she did when she first started. Graduating from Nova Southeastern University with her Audiologist Assistant Certificate in 2012, Denice was ready to help people hear better and, in turn, lead better lives. She loves how well the team at TVHB gets along, describing them as her second family.
Outside of the office, she's busy with her six sons and her grandchildren. Her ever-growing family love to camp, fish, hunt, and, of course, spend quality time together. Working in the hearing care industry, she knows just how important it is to connect with those you love.
Lisa has relatives who have struggled with hearing loss, so when her 26-year tenure with Dr. Wayne Davis ended upon the dentist's retirement, it seemed a natural step to switch to audiology to help others hear better. When she first met the staff, even before getting hired, she could see their passion for what they do. Now that she's part of the team, she loves the energy they all share and how infectious that energy is to the patients.
Lisa is very close to her active family. They enjoy biking, hiking, and fishing, and they are huge Boise State and Seattle Seahawks fans.
