In early 2018, Dr. Curtis decided to open her own private practice with the goal of providing excellent hearing healthcare services to patients of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds in Northeast Ohio. Sounds of Life Hearing Center, LLC opened in October 2018 and, as Dr. Curtis will confirm, was one of the best decisions of her life.

Dr. Curtis is a native of Painesville and Mentor, Ohio. She is a Mentor High graduate and obtained her B.A. in Psychology from Youngstown State University (Go Penguins!). Her wonderful husband is Daniel (who built this awesome website) and they chase their kids (Zach and Ellie), two dogs, and two cats around for fun.
