Since earning her doctorate, Dr. Smith has worked with children and adults in a private practice and in a school setting. During this time, she developed a love for pediatric patients and osseo-integrated hearing devices, especially cochlear implants. She joined the staff of Professional Audiological Services in June 2017. Dr. Smith provides counseling to parents considering cochlear implantation for their child as well as to adults thinking about cochlear implantation for themselves.
She provides cochlear implant activation and mapping services to patients with Advanced Bionics, Cochlear, & Med-El cochlear implants. She provides services to adults and children who wear osseo-integrated hearing aids (both Cochlear Baha and Oticon Medical Ponto). She enjoys providing services as an educational audiologist for the local municipal school systems.
She is passionate about children with hearing loss. She strives to help them have the tools they need to be successful in school and in life. Nothing is more rewarding to her than giving someone the gift of hearing.
Dr. Smith was raised in Millington, Tennessee, and currently resides in East Memphis. She married the love of her life in 2010 and is the mother of two wonderful young boys. She and her “boys” enjoy swimming, going on walks, worshipping at their church, and cheering on the Atlanta Braves, Memphis Tigers, and Nashville Predators. Her husband keeps trying to convert her to a Dallas Cowboys fan but, so far, no luck!
