She headed back downstate and spent over 10 years in the Urbana-Champaign, IL, area and worked at Carle Clinic. While at Carle, she performed nearly all diagnostic and treatment aspects of audiology and worked in collaboration with the other audiologists and ear, nose, and throat physicians.
Christine also performed hearing testing for soldiers getting ready for combat. The combination of these experiences has given Christine a vast knowledge of not only audiology, but different patients’ backgrounds, needs, and lifestyles.
Christine is married with 2 children and their dog, Emmitt. Together with her family, she enjoys the many activities that sunny Naples has to offer. Her favorite sport is golf and she had the opportunity to play collegiate golf while attending the University of Illinois. Go Illini! She continues to be very close with her family and friends in her hometown in Illinois, so she tries to get back often to spend time with them.
Moving to Naples and Building the Practice
Christine moved to Naples, FL in 2014, and worked for another local private audiology practice. In August 2017 when Mr. Sinclair decided to retire from High Fidelity Hearing, she purchased the practice and transformed it into Naples Audiology & Hearing Center.
Christine looks forward to meeting people, developing relationships, and providing genuine patient care. She feels there needs to be a greater focus on hearing health care instead of hearing aid sales. When you visit her practice, you’ll receive comprehensive audiology services.
