Being born deaf or with a profound hearing loss doesn’t have to be a lifelong limitation! I lost my hearing due to complications from a premature birth, which left me with profound hearing loss in both ears. I thrived in the early days of auditory-oral education and was mainstreamed into my local elementary school district at kindergarten. I went on to obtain a degree in Political Science and a Juris Doctorate in Law.

It has been an incredible honor and opportunity to “pay it forward” as a board member for CCHAT Center.The school not only does wonders for both kids and their families, but for the community as well. I am the co-founder of Principle Faucets, a water conservation plumbing company. When not working, you will find my dog and I on mountain peaks, running or on the trail. Please feel free to reach out to me through CCHAT if you have any questions about life with hearing loss.
