She has served as a trustee since 2002 for Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, founder of Deaf Services International, and cofounder of Audiology Practices, Inc. Over her 30-year career, Dr. Price has held various board and committee positions with numerous national audiology organizations. In 1986, Dr. Price began providing hearing conservation, education, ear plugs, hearing testing and hearing aids for members of Dallas Safari Club, Texas Big Horn Society, Park Cities Quail, and women’s shooting sports.
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Price has donated countless hours, 400+ hearing aids, 200,000 batteries, and more than $60,000 in medical equipment to benefit low-income hearing-impaired children and adults. She founded Deaf Services International in 1986 for children in Mexico. She worked with the Rio Negro Foundation in 2003 to test and treat natives along the Amazon River. Dr. Price says, “I entered this profession to help improve lives through better hearing. I want to continue helping others, particularly those who cannot afford hearing aids.”
Dr. Price and her staff joined Audigy in May 2009. Several times a year she accompanies different members of her staff to training venues around the country. Some involve hearing aid fitting and programming and some are patient-service oriented. Every staff member attends at least 2 training per year. Being a part of Audigy has enriched the lives of each staff member personally, professionally, and financially. Our patients are the recipients of many of these rewards.
