More About Connor’s Journey

Connor's journey began when his progressive hearing loss was identified and he received his hearing aids when he was 4 years old. Thanks to support from his family and his professional team, including his own pediatric audiologist, he had a wonderful childhood. Later, as a young adult, he chose to undergo a cochlear implant procedure during college that changed the trajectory of his life. His hearing loss, served as inspiration to help children with hearing loss, so he changed his major to focus on audiology. The patient became the doctor.

Today, Connor is a skilled audiologist and a passionate advocate for families who have a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Both Connor and his wife Stevie use their personal story to inspire families that their child who is deaf or hard of hearing can grow up to reach their full potential. Together, they encourage parents to keep dreaming big for their child's future.
