Hi, my name is Celia or Ceci as most call me. I am originally from California and made the big move to Iowa with 3 of my 4 children over the summer of 23′. So far we are enjoying it, but we’ll see how our first winter goes. In my free time I like to spend time with my kiddos and find new fun places to explore.

I have been in the medical field for 12+ years working in both in-patient and outpatient facilities as a phlebotomist. My experience in this field has strengthened my compassion and empathy towards my patients and gave me the ability to understand patients on a different level. I am also working on my Associates degree in Health Science to further my knowledge. Although I am new to the hearing aid industry, I am certain that this shift in careers will be a positive one. And I am excited to see what the future holds.

I had a small break in the casing of one in-ear hearing aid and within minutes it was fixed, both aids were cleaned and I was on my way again. Excellent and absolutely friendly service. I love my hearing aids and the continuing great service I receive from Hearing Unlimited.

Michael Smith was very good at explaining all of my options. I felt if I had problems with my hearing aids he would take care of me. Felt very pleased when we left
