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 and seven grandchildren, she loves spending time with family whenever she can. She and her husband love to shoot and have taught their kids and grandkids gun safety and good sportsmanship. Together they have served together doing medical missions and hope to do more.
Before coming to Treasure Valley Hearing, Annette worked at Walmart for nine years as their training coordinator. While she's new to the field, she enjoys everything about her position because it gives her the opportunity to connect and establish meaningful relationships with every patient. She loves her teammates because they go above and beyond for their patients and each other.
Making memories with her family means everything to her. She's been happily married since 1991 and has five wonderful children. Her grandkids are her everything!
Kelly became interested in hearing care when looking for a "later in life" career change. She loves making a difference in someone's life. She appreciated coming to work for Treasure Valley Hearing because of their "patient-centered" approach.
Kelly and her husband Mike will be celebrating 40 years of marriage in August 2017. They have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. Kelly enjoys spending time with family and sunset campfires. She recently took up camping (or glamping as one might say) as she feels too old for a tent. She has so many beautiful places to investigate in Idaho.
Chelsea comes to us with a diverse background. She studied and earned her Bachelor's degree at the University of Washington and went on to pursue her post-baccalaureate in Speech-Language Pathology.
She has spent time at the Veteran's Hospital in Boise and worked as a Newborn Hearing Screener at St. Luke's NICU. In 2017, Chelsea was fortunate to be able to give back to her Treasure Valley community as a Wish Granter by giving the "gift of hearing" to an end of life patient in her role as a Provider at Treasure Valley Hearing.
One of the things Chelsea loves most about being a Provider is the connection she makes each and every day with her community for the better.
In her spare time, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her family, riding her horses, fishing, camping, hiking, and anything that allows her to be outdoors in this wonderful state of Idaho!
