Since 1999, Melissa Blakeman has been helping thousands of patients along their journey to better hearing. Licensed by the state of Tennessee, Melissa’s journey to assist the hearing impaired was influenced by her family’s history of hearing loss. Melissa joined the Shea Hearing Aid Center in 2004, bringing her passionate commitment to quality hearing care. She finds it extremely rewarding to see the smiles she puts on her patients and the bigger smiles she puts on her patients’ families’ faces. Through surveys, Melissa has been noted to have one of the nation’s highest patient satisfactions and as such, receives many referrals from those she has served. She believes a hearing loss is much more noticeable than a hearing aid. She is committed to guiding her patients along their roads to better hearing starting with their initial evaluations and continuing throughout their personalized rehabilitation processes. From meeting the patient for the first time, to conducting a complete hearing evaluation, the patient is left with only one conclusion, that they have come to the right place. Testing, fitting, service and follow-up, are all conducted with compassion and integrity.
Eli joined the hearing industry and has been helping patients hear better since 2012. Eli’s favorite part of working in the hearing industry is getting to know his patients and utilizing the best technology in the market to improve their lives through better hearing.
Eli has an adorable wife and two year old son. He enjoys alternative rock music and spending time with family. Fun fact, he helped set a relay record in swimming while going to New Mexico State University!
