Joyce Kinker-Johnson, M.A., CCC-A

Joyce been helping people hear for over 36 years. She is often heard to say that she began her career at age 12. Actually she became interested in the hearing impaired as a young teen when she baby sat for a deaf child and helped with his speech therapy. After graduating from Bowling Green State University with a Master of Arts Degree in Audiology, she worked in the medical offices of Dr. Blanchard, Devany, Parker and Willis as their director of Audiology for 20 years. Joyce was one of the first audiologists in the country to dispense hearing aids and has fit thousands of people with amplification over the past 36 years.

She continues to love the field of Audiology. "I have been part of the amazing transformations in hearing health care. It has been fascinating to be able to be part of the digital technology revolution that continues to provide people with hearing loss, better and better hearing aids. When I first started in this field, hearing aids were really just boom boxes, there was little you could do to custom fit them to an individual's hearing loss. Today, with the advanced technologies available, there is virtually no hearing loss that cannot be helped," reports Mrs. Johnson.
