Mackenzie Emery, HIS

Hearing Instrument Specialist

Mackenzie joins us from the east coast. She graduated from James Madison University’s Speech and Communication Disorders program in 2018. She will be in our Waterloo, Sumner, and Independence locations as a Hearing Instrument Specialist. Mackenzie was drawn to the profession from a medical mission trip to Guatemala her junior and senior year of high school. During the second trip she met a child that was deaf and could only communicate by grunting or pulling on his mother’s shirt. It became a passion of hers to help those in need cope with their hearing loss and to provide the best possible solution to serve their individual hearing needs.

The most important aspect about saving hearing lives to Mackenzie is that she has the opportunity to educate individuals on the communication barriers between them and society and provide a solution. She will provide enthusiastic and consistent care with every patient who seeks out hearing assistance.

Outside of saving hearing lives she enjoys spending time with her friends outside, playing with her two dogs and two cats, and visiting her family on the east coast.
