Hearing Loss Blog!
Welcome to the You CI Can Hear Now website and hearing loss blog! My name is Samantha and I work as a Pediatric Audiologist. I was diagnosed with severe sensorineural hearing loss at 18 months old and subsequently fit with hearing aids. I attended a Total Communication program where I learned both sign and spoken language. By age 5, I was mainstreamed in kindergarten and the rest is history! Years later, I received a cochlear implant in 2015 and currently wear a hearing aid in the other ear. Join me in learning all about hearing loss, cochlear implants & hearing aids, and my tips & tricks for the deaf & hard-of-hearing.
In my free time I enjoy experimenting with coffee, eating & cooking delicious cuisine, traveling the world (pre-COVID) and living a healthy lifestyle. I have many other side hobbies that I can’t wait to share with you.
You CI Can Hear Now is a place for all with hearing loss. I hope to have a place where you can come to learn about hearing loss, obtain resources that would be useful for you and your family, and grow in your new journey with hearing loss.
No matter where you are in your journey, I hope that my journey will inspire you to reach for the stars. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog! Feel free to reach out or send some love in the comments.
I would love to shine a light on those who have a small business related to the hard of hearing world or stories meant to spread hearing loss awareness. If you are interested in collaborations or working together, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How To Interpret Audiograms Handbook

Trainees and experienced clinicians, as well as non-audiologists in related fields, will benefit from this unique workbook and easy-to-remember interpretation process.
