Chavira will join The Hearing Place at two of its six locations, Fort Lupton and Greeley.
"We know first-hand that Dr. Chavira would have made a valuable addition to The Hearing Place even without her Spanish fluency," said Dr. Brittany Mathisen, Audiologist and Owner of The Hearing Place. "But as a growing practice with six locations, we also consider hiring her a valuable step toward the inclusivity we aspire to help shape throughout the Northern Colorado community."
Chavira, a Greeley native and first-generation Mexican American with Spanish-speaking fluency, will be working full-time as an Audiologist providing care in English and Spanish for patients seeking Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations, Customized Hearing Improvement Plans, and other services.
Chavira graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley with a Bachelor of Science in Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences and her Doctorate of Audiology. She also completed an internship in a school district, identifying and intervening in hearing loss with school children. She worked at a second internship with The Hearing Place, a one-year externship at an Ear, Nose, and Throat clinic working with a team of Otolaryngologists performing comprehensive audiological and vestibular evaluations, hearing aid evaluations, and hearing aid fittings, according to the Hearing Place officials,
In 2019, Dr. Chavira worked in the field at a sugar mill in Guatemala, helping to prevent hearing loss by performing hearing and hearing protector fit testing for industrial workers.
"It is never the wrong time to gain knowledge and take the first steps to better hearing and quality of life," states Dr. Chavira.
