We’d like to welcome Kathryn A. Otto, MA, CCC-A to Chicagoland Hearing Aid Centers!
Kathy graduated from Glenbard West High School and went on to complete her undergraduate work at The University of Iowa, where she received her BA in Speech and Hearing Sciences. She then attended Northwestern University and earned her MA in Audiology and Hearing Impairment. Chicago afforded many clinical opportunities while in grad school, including working at Hines VA Hospital, Children’s Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. She completed her certification working at the Dizziness and Balance Center in Glenview.
After relocating to Iowa, she worked with an ENT group and started her own hearing aid practice. After moving back to the Chicago area, Kathy returned to her alma mater, Northwestern, to lecture and supervise graduate students. She has also worked with Dr. Richard Wiet at the Chicago Otology Group (now the Ear Institute of Chicago) and Drs. Richard Bulger and James Rejowski (formerly York ENT, S.C.). Kathy joined Auditory Services, Inc. in 2009 where she worked until October, 2016.
When she’s not working with patients, she’s either singing with The Elizabethans (where they perform for various assisted living facilities and local groups) or at the barn, pursing her passion for the sport of eventing with her horses.
We are too excited to have Kathy as our newest member of the Chicagoland Hearing Aid Centers team!
