Since 2017, Hear in the Fox Cities has helped eleven children with the purchase of hearing aids, fundraising to help provide kids with the gift of hearing.
Right after Dr. Long helped launch Hear in the Fox Cities in 2017, three other hearing aid providers heard about her initiative and wanted to help. Even though these businesses are competitors, they were all motivated to come together and move the mission forward, which showed great passion for the cause.
They want to come together to help with Hear’s mission. Together, they make hearing a reality for children, donating their time performing hearing tests, hearing aid fittings, and follow-up visits for these children.
Stephanie is a thoughtful and giving person and takes every opportunity to help others. At one HearStrong event, a patient said, “Too often hearing care professionals are seen as someone who sells hearing aids, but not Stephanie. She contributes to the big picture; she helps reduce the extent and the impact of hearing loss with her compassionate care, education, and hearing loss prevention. Stephanie contributes not only with hearing technology but also helps her patients move forward and continue to live well with hearing loss.”
There are many motivators when it comes to having a successful career. For over twenty years as an audiologist, Stephanie has maintained the same passion and desire to serve in her community. Through values such as leadership, enthusiasm, positivity, and strong community ties, it has helped Stephanie reach her full potential in her audiology practice and her life.
