Shonie Hannah, M.A., CCC-A, FAAA
As early as age 14, Shonie Hannah knew her calling was to help people. She planned to be a speech pathologist but discovered audiology was her true passion. Shonie earned her bachelor’s degree in communication disorders from Washington State University and her master’s in audiology from Western Washington University.
A professor had nurtured her passion for pediatric audiology, and she soon found herself working with children and treating hearing loss as a clinical audiologist at a small ENT practice. It was fulfilling because she got to not only connect with people, but also be part of their hearing journey. In her 31 years in ENT practice, she was a dispensing audiologist, audiology supervisor, created and managed the hearing aid department, and evaluated difficult-to-test and special-needs patients.
She loves Spencer Audiology Clinic because she has never experienced this level of support from colleagues or this degree of appreciation from patients. The whole team has the same mission — to provide each patient with the best individualized patient care and service throughout their hearing journey.
Shonie and her husband live in rural Whatcom County, enjoy being outdoors, and love working in the yard. They enjoy biking, golfing, hiking, and traveling. Shonie personally loves to read, bake, cook, and hang with friends. They have three adult children and three grandchildren.
Michelle has a bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management and majored in Culinary Arts. She has a combination of over 14 years of experience in both customer service and management. She has been a part of Spencer Audiology Clinic for over 4 years now.
Michelle loves helping people and it has always been in her nature. Being able to make a profound difference in people’s lives and help them hear better has been amazing to experience and witness. She is currently studying to become a Hearing Instrument Specialist to continue her passion. Michelle believes being a part of Spencer Audiology Clinic has allowed her to be a part of something great.
Michelle enjoys being outdoors, finding the newest culinary destination, or spending quality time at home with her husband and daughter.
