Founded on Trust
My foundation in faith and family has allowed me to face challenges and grow into an expert in hearing health care. I gained valuable experience as I provided audiology services at another private practice, a hearing aid manufacture and United Way Agency. I then established my practice to offer the best practices in patient care which includes client and family communication goals to measure success.
My Master’s Degree from Michigan State University was conferred in 1985; became ASHA certified in 1986; and have maintained Board Certification in Audiology since 1999. Board Certification includes a review of passing test scores every three years and requires balanced coursework to keep up with the latest in diagnostic and rehabilitative services and a commitment to ethical practice.
Elkhart Audiology Family
Personally, my husband Bruce and I enjoy going to small family owned restaurants and attending local activities. My son Jon serves as a corrections officer here in Elkhart County and my daughter Liz is a senior at Ball State. We have family in this area, Indianapolis and in lower Michigan and feel blessed we get together often to play card games, watch the Cubs, or spend time in and on the water.
Debbie has been involved in various aspects of the medical field since 1999. In 2012 she graduated with honors as a Medical Assistant from Ross Medical. Her responsibilities here at Elkhart Audiology Rehab are to give excellent customer care whether scheduling appointments or helping with insurance or billing questions.
Debbie is a life-long resident of South Bend. She is very active with the American Legion Auxiliary Post #357 where she has served as President three times and is currently serving as Chaplain. She has a daughter Lisa Marie, son-in-law Kenny, and two beautiful grandsons Joshua and Regan.
Stefanie Miller joined Elkhart Audiology Rehab in May 2018. She graduated from IPFW in 2012 with a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Although she aspired to be a Speech Language Pathologist, she feels God had other plans. After college, she spent a few years working with small children as a Developmental Therapist through First Steps Indiana. In 2013, married her High School sweetheart and soon motherhood came calling. After their daughter was born in 2016, she decided to stay home with her. Although she loves being a mom, she was looking for part-time employment and heard about EAR. Since she has a heart for helping others communicate better and her education included both the speech and hearing aspects of communication, EAR is the perfect match. She has a smile ready and is happy to help you with your questions.
