Vici, a native of Pittstown, New York, always wanted to be in a profession that helped people. Having seen family members struggle with hearing loss, she learned firsthand how it can impact an individual’s life as well as those around them. It was easy for her to choose hearing health as a career path.
In 1993, Vici earned an Associate’s Degree in Social Work from Hudson Valley Community College, and then went on for a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Disorders from the College of Saint Rose in 1995. The next year, she completed a Master’s Degree in Audiology from Plattsburgh State at which time she began practicing Audiology. In 2004, she went on to earn a Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from Salus University College of Audiology.
Currently, Vici holds membership in the American Academy of Audiology
Prior to joining Capital Region Hearing, Vici worked at HearUSA and Glens Falls Hospital Hearing Center. Her specialty is working with the adult and geriatric population.
