Lora Biddle earned a Bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences & Disorders from James Madison University in 2017. She became interested in Audiology at a young age after it was discovered she was born deaf in her right ear. She was diagnosed at age 2, and has since developed mild hearing loss in her left ear. Her experiences in dealing with hearing loss and amplification throughout her life led her to a passion for hearing care, particularly in assisting patients in their hearing treatment journey. She enjoys helping others hear, repairing hearing aids, and understands the impact a hearing aid can have on those with hearing loss.
She is now a licensed Hearing Aid Specialist in Virginia. Her focus is on assisting with all parts of the hearing care journey, with expertise in care and maintenance.
