About Us

At Live Better Hearing, we’re different and we like it that way. We combine an intense passion for helping people with the best hearing healthcare technology available. We recognize that you have a lot of options today when seeking treatment, and we view the opportunity to serve you as a distinct privilege. In addition to our private practices, we have also established the Live Better Foundation, a nonprofit whose goal is to help those who truly can’t afford hearing aids get the help they need, right here within the communities where we live and work.

Our offices are staffed with some of the nation’s very best Doctors of Audiology and Hearing Instrument Specialists. Live Better Hearing provides the full range of audiology services for all ages including testing for newborns, diagnostic hearing evaluations, balance testing, advanced electrophysiology testing, as well as the provision of the most cutting-edge hearing aids, balance and tinnitus treatments. Live Better Hearing provides appropriate, medically and scientifically sound testing and treatment options for patients, in a kind and compassionate way.

Ashly Wilcox is an audiology resident at Live Better Hearing + Balance from Central Michigan University. Ashly chose Audiology because she's always had a passion for helping others. She loves that audiology allows her to get to know patients on an individual level. It also gives her opportunities to think "out of the box" when it comes to problem-solving and finding a solution that best fits someone's life. She is an avid lover of learning. When it comes to Audiology, the profession is continually improving and growing, which allows her to do the same. Her capstone project was a research study that consisted of researching the Effect Varying Signal to Noise Ratios and Reverberation Times has on a Listeners' Speech Perception with a Mild to Severe Sensorineural Hearing Loss. She received a research grant, the Herbert H. & Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions Student Grant, to fund her research.


She has received the J. Dean & Betty L. Eckersley Audiology Scholarship honoring clinical and academic excellence in September 2018 and The Nicholas Redfield Award, recognizing outstanding clinical and academic excellence in September 2019.


In her free time, she loves to sew, knit, and crochet along with playing with her bearded dragon, Mushu. She also likes to hike.
