Hearing instrument specialist Grace Hindes attended the North Dakota State College of Science and worked as a workforce analyst for a telecommunications company before she decided to change careers 13 years ago to help people overcome their hearing problems.

She signed on with Ellen Anderson M.A. Hearing Services in 2001 as an office manager. She became a hearing instrument specialist in 2003 after she got her license. She has since gotten several certifications, such as being a certified tinnitus therapist who uses music therapy to retrain the brain so that it doesn’t hear tinnitus anymore.

Hindes says she always wanted to go into the medical field, and had initially planned to become a neurologist while she was attending school in North Dakota.

She has worked with Anderson for 12 years involved in hearing screening, oral rehabilitation, tinnitus retraining and hearing instrument work. Hindes says she makes a point of staying current with all of the technology upgrades in the field so that she can offer cutting-edge service to her clients.

“I am very dedicated to serving our patients,” Hindes says. “They are our number one priority.”

She is also active in the community, serving as a Rotarian with the Fairfield-Suisun Twilight Rotary Club, which recently included going to Haiti to volunteer at a medical clinic that helps the residents of that country.
