Judy Sargent, Hearing Instrument Specialist, Owner

I am the proud Mom of two wonderful adults. I treasure all the years of watching my daughter play soccer and drum, and my son play baseball while they were growing up and even still today. You can find me outside almost any day walking, hiking, or even playing tennis. In the summers my kids and I spend a lot of weekends at Priest Lake with the rest of my family.

One of the things that I love the most about Advanced Hearing is that it feels like home. We are not your typical office in that our office is filled with Norman Rockwell prints and pictures of our families. I want everyone that walks thru the door to feel like family and to know that we are going to treat you that way too. I'm so thankful to be a part of Advanced Hearing and I get such joy in seeing excitement on our patient's faces when they hear again. I love my job!

I was raised in New Jersey and have called Spokane home for over 25 years. My wife and I have two great kids. I am an avid bird watcher and have seen over 400 different birds. I enjoy fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

Audiology is a second career for me. I was a wildlife biologist and enjoyed that very much. I have found that audiology is a very rewarding profession. It’s such a great thing to help people get their life back and to hear their family again. I have worked for Advanced Hearing for over 20 years. We strive to make all our customers feel like family.

I am lucky to have called the Pacific Northwest home my entire life. I married my wonderful husband Shane since 1996. We are blessed to have three great kids. I love spending time with my family.

I am so proud to work for Advanced Hearing. It’s a true local company. Our goal is to help everyone hear better. We always put the customer first – the rest will figure itself out. I am so blessed to get to know so many great people. I love it when our customers see me outside the office and come up to say hello.
