Audiology was the answer for Christine Wilson, M.S., CCC-A, after a desire to work with people on a one-to-one basis left her wondering if her successful career in business was her true calling.
“I realized audiology was my place to be,” she said, after interaction with her father’s speech therapist prompted her to enroll in the communications degree program at the local community college. “I finished my masters degree about 17 years ago and haven’t looked back.”
Today she uses her former business experience as owner of Conejo Hearing Center in Westlake Village, CA, while positively affecting quality of life as a hearing healthcare professional.
“So much of the day is working with people and getting them through the process of accepting their impairment and doing something that will change their lives. I feel like they’re my family,” she says of her patients. “It makes me want to come to work every day.”
