Once I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps and pursue a career in audiology, I found myself fascinated by all there was to learn. Being around my father all those years was excellent preparation for my education — maybe that’s why I graduated first in my class from Cal State LA. But graduating first in my class was nothing compared to the satisfaction I receive each and every day I get to help one of my patients hear better.
We are a family business in the truest sense. Part of being a Parker was working in the office as a young adult; filing, cleaning hearing aids, scheduling appointments, and so on. While in College, I was determined to find a career, that did not include Audiology. However, as with most of life’s lessons, I learned that Home is where the Heart is, and so was Audiology. My father, Lee Parker, convinced me to enroll in an introduction to Audiology class, which I took begrudgingly. Within the first week, I knew I found my calling. I have been happily working beside both my Father and Brother, Josh Parker, helping California hear for 32 years. I hope to do it for many more.
