Mary Jo Benyo, earned her bachelors and masters degrees at Michigan State University and has been working as a clinical audiologist since 1991. Mary Jo received her Clinical Doctor of Audiology Degree from AT Still University in May of 2007.
As an audiologist, there are many different career paths from which to choose and she has found that working as an audiologist in a hearing aid dispensing office is a great fit. She believes a successful hearing aid fitting requires keeping up with the changes in science and technology as well as being a good listener and problem solver.
"Digital hearing aids have given us the ability to provide many more choices for the individual needing help with their hearing. Matching the technology with the person, means spending some time learning about the client, their lifestyle and their communication needs. The process can sometimes be more challenging than expected, but the rewards of better hearing and a happy client makes it all worthwhile."
