Priscilla’s passion for helping others stems from having parents who set a good example to her. Their desire to help others had a strong impact on her faith and values. While receiving education in the hearing aid industry, she learned the negative impacts hearing loss can have on a person’s mental and emotional well-being. This was a big eye-opener, and this has motivated her to want to educate others.
With the pieces of training she has received and the constant advancements in technology, it makes her feel good that she can help others achieve a better quality of life.
Outside the office, she likes to be outdoors for activities like gardening, hiking, fishing, hunting, or camping with her husband and their four-legged furry friend. She also enjoys volunteering in a local and worldwide ministry program that helps other people improve their lives and provides support to victims of natural disasters.
