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 and 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.
