Happy New Year WE’VE BEEN A TEAM FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS
Joe and Tammy grew up together in the small boarder town
of Bluefield W. Va. In the early days Tammy and Joe were
inseparable, growing up in the same house with Joe always
keeping a watchful eye on his younger niece, who was really
more like a sister to him. Celebrating birthdays and holidays
together for many years. The two became like one, knowing
what the other was thinking or about to say before they even
said it. Joe would help Tammy with her school projects and
Tammy would help Joe find his lost books or toys or help him
wash his bike. They were a team then much like they are today.

Now Tammy, along with Joe’s daughter Bailee, helps Joe with

OUR GOAL QUITE SIMPLY PUT, “BETTER HEARING FOR OUR CLIENTS”

After 22 years in Law Enforcement Joe decided to refocus his career path. Joe knew he would need to be involved in
helping people and searched for a new career that would allow him to move in that direction. Joe’s brother in law worked
in the hearing healthcare field and after some considerable research Joe decided to move forward in the hearing healthcare
field. After Joe completed his training and schooling he ended his highly decorated career in Law Enforcement and retired
from the St. Lucie County Sheriff ’s Office. Joe was licensed in 2002 by the State of Florida as a Hearing Aid Specialist
and opened his first practice in St. Lucie West in 2003 and today, continues to help people as he has done his entire
professional career.

Today and for the past 11 years Joe and Tammy are giving back the gift of hearing to friends and neighbors from around
the Treasure Coast.
