Just five years ago, Shelly York was working in the hotel industry in Louisiana, a far cry from performing modern miracles at a hearing center.
“[I] had reached a plateau in my career,” York says. “I began seeking a change and found an opportunity with the local Miracle-Ear Center. Through a recommendation of an acquaintance in the industry, I felt like it would be a good fit for me. Little did I know that helping people with their hearing would become a source of such joy and take me where I am today.”
York now is a franchise owner of two different Miracle-Ear affiliates; one in Little Rock and the other in Morrilton. Each and every day, Miracle-Ear provides the gift of sound to Arkansans with hearing impairments, providing them with one of the five senses that those without such disabilities often take for granted.
“I have always said that my favorite part of my profession has been the joy that comes from helping my patients reconnect with their family and friends through the ease of communication that comes with better hearing,” York says. “However, now after five years of practice, my favorite part has evolved. I now find that my favorite part is exceeding the expectations of our patients at every point of contact that leads to better hearing. Miracle-Ear not only has the best hearing aids, but we also have the most thorough evaluation, the best trained (and Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences) providers, the most advanced and natural-sounding technology. … And the best music in the lobby.”
York is board certified in hearing instrument sciences from the National Board for Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences (NBC-HIS), a designation that she is supremely proud of, for it shows her dedication to excel beyond just the basic requirements for assisting those with hearing impairments. “Some of the most experienced hearing health professionals in the world share the distinguishing BC-HIS — the symbol of certification through NBC-HIS,” York says. “It’s an assurance that you’re getting the perfect fit for your hearing health care needs.”
