Dr. Brandner is a West Michigan native. She grew up in Lowell and her family still lives there. She is coming here with her husband and her 2 daughters. They love to spend time fishing, hiking, and spending time with family.
She earned her bachelors degree at Central Michigan University and her Doctorate in Audiology at Western Michigan University. She completed her externship at the Paparella Ear Head and Neck Institute in Minneapolis where she gained a great deal of experience working with patients with a variety of medical issues that effected their hearing and balance. She had the opportunity to help patients meet their hearing goals with hearing aids, and cochlear implants. After she completed her externship she continued practicing there for another year.
After this she took a position at St. John Providence Health System for 7 years, where she was able to provide a variety of audiological services for patients in the Detroit metro area. She worked with patients from birth to 100 years old. When she would see the pediatric population she would work with the child, parent, and the school to develop an appropriate plan to help the patient be successful both at school and at home with his or her hearing goals. She would approach her adult patients in the same way to make sure that they were able to meet their hearing goals, even if that met consulting with their place of employment to make certain that the patient could be successful with his or her hearing at work.
In 2015 she was fortunate to become part of the Kaczmarski Hearing Services family. She is excited to be able to serve her friends and family in the area. She makes it a point to treat all of her patients like family by giving them honest recommendations on how to meet their hearing goals. She looks forward to being able to serve the community where she grew up.
