Dr. Chris Hoffmann is passionate about helping people with their hearing and has been involved in hearing sciences for over 20 years. Her fascination with hearing emerged from her studies in biology and music as an undergraduate student at Cal Poly Luis Obispo where she obtained a B.S. in Biology and a Minor in Music. Her earlier endeavors were in scientific research of the auditory system for which she earned a M.S. in Physiological Sciences from UCLA. She later chose the path to become an audiologist so that she could help people personally with their hearing.
