I Became An Audiologist To Help People
Even before the Covid pandemic, I saw a need for our services outside the traditional office setting. Then, when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I saw first-hand the challenges of getting her ready and getting to an office for an appointment. Many of our elderly patients have other health and mobility issues as well. Since starting this unique home-based Audiology company, I have seen many patients in assisted living communities, some in wheelchairs, where it would have otherwise been extremely challenging for them to come to me for an appointment and the sad reality is they probably wouldn’t have. It is critical that we address untreated hearing loss.
“For some time, I’ve been jealous of friends in other industries that “work from home”. I just couldn’t figure out how I could be an Audiologist and still see patients while working from home.
There are positions available with hearing aid manufacturers to provide technical support to other audiologists over the phone but that just didn’t seem like something I would want to do. Just about every day as I was leaving for work before 8am, I would tell my dog, “If I could figure out a way to make a living staying home with you, I would do it!”
When I heard about Audiology on Call, I spoke with Stephany to get more information. I thought it sounded really intriguing but I kept asking myself “but how does it work?”. I couldn’t envision that we could do hearing tests and all the things that we do in the realm of fitting hearing aids in someones’ home. I soon found out that the technology and equipment does exist that will allow us to perform accurate hearing tests, hearing aid programming and verification all in the comfort of your home! So, I could be my own boss, work from home and still see patients! From that point forward, I was all onboard!
It has been a challenge starting a new business, during a pandemic, nonetheless. I have definitely had my days of “what was I thinking?” but it soon passes with “I can do this.” The support of my family, friends, colleagues and patients has been invaluable. I have learned so much in these past few months. The whole reason that I became an Audiologist to begin with was “to help people”. I will never put profit ahead of patient care.”
“Please allow me the pleasure of introducing you to Kelli Smith Au.D. I have known Dr. Smith both personally and professionally for six years.
You will find Dr. Smith to be a very professional, responsible, and trustworthy individual. Just as important is her very kind, compassionate, and caring spirit. She offers her support in an unobtrusive manner – working behind the scenes to lend support and guidance to many. She does not look for accolades but simply moves through each day lending a caring heart and hand. Her heartfelt passion to assist the hearing impaired and her unrelenting work ethic are unmatchable.
Dr. Smith’s commitment to expanding awareness on hearing loss and her volunteerism in her community is something that I admire and I believe she will prove to be an asset to both individuals and families as they may face a challenging time.”
A Portion Of Every Hearing Aid Sale Is Donated To Angels Among Us Pet Rescue
With animal welfare being a huge passion of mine, I’ve been a long-term admirer, donor, and volunteer for Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, currently overseeing their dog Adoption Customer Service team.
They are real-life heroes that are dedicated to saving cats and dogs from high-risk situations throughout Georgia and having seen the work they do firsthand, I am inspired by their resourcefulness, care, and dedication.
They also helped me to meet somebody very special in my life in 2015, my beautiful dog, Lulabelle, for whom I’m eternally grateful!
The biggest challenge that they have is as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, they operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the metro Atlanta area.
This means that the only way that they can continue to save the hundreds of cats and dogs that they do each year is through donations.
That’s why, for every hearing aid purchase that you make, a portion is donated to this wonderful charity.
You’re able to address a hearing challenge, become one of my private patients, and have peace of mind knowing that your decision has gone on to help local animals in need.

The convenience of her bringing her business to your front door is beyond great! You schedule an appointment and she arrives exactly on time with her equipment, and a big smile! This saves you from driving in traffic, parking, possibly bad weather conditions, etc. I highly recommend Dr. Smith!”
