Angela Barton received her Bachelors Degree in 1990 and her Masters Degree in Audiology in 1991 from Michigan State University. Since graduation she has made Grand Rapids her home, where she enjoys spending time with her husband of 15 years and their three children.
Angela has worked in private audiology practices and with Ear, Nose and Throat physicians. She believes these experiences have given her an appreciation of the medical aspect of hearing loss and an understanding of the emotional toll that it can take on the individual as well as their family. Ironically, listening is essential to finding the right "fit" of hearing aids for an individual. Taking the time to get to know each patient and their lifestyle is as important as knowing the type of hearing loss they have. "As an audiologist, the measure of my success and the reward of a job well done is the positive feedback from patients and their families whose lives have been enriched because of better hearing."
