New Employees Rock’n The Hearing Professionals

The halls at The Hearing Professionals just got a bit more crowded as two new employees joined the company. The Hearing Professionals is proud to announce the addition of Kathy Schauer and Melissa Born as our newest providers.

Kathy Schauer, BC-HIS

When it comes to dispensing hearing instruments in Milwaukee, few people can compare to the likes of Kathy Schauer. Kathy received her license to dispense hearing instruments in 1976 and has worked at offices including Sonus, Master Hearing and Milwaukee Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic. In fact, when Kathy worked at Milwaukee Ear, Nose and Throat, Audiologists were not allowed to dispense hearing instruments and being a dispenser she fit all of the hearing instruments sold and provided all of the follow-up services. “I don’t think there’s anyone in Milwaukee who has successfully fit more hearing aids than Kathy,” says Adam Bernstein, owner of The Hearing Professionals. “For our patients this means assurance in knowing they’re working with one of the most knowledgeable providers in town. It also means fewer follow-up appointments and better overall satisfaction.” Schauer will be managing the company’s Brookfield office which is located at the Ruby Isle shopping center in Brookfield. In addition to working at The Hearing Professionals, Schauer is an award-winning endurance horseback rider. You can email her at

Melissa Born, M.S., CCC-A

The Hearing Professionals is also proud to announce the addition of Melissa Born as an Audiologist in their Glendale office. Melissa received both her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Communicative Disorders and her Master of Science in Communicative Disorders from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. After receiving her degree as an Audiologist, Melissa spent time working in California at Children’s Hospital and Research Center in Oakland and Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. Upon returning to Wisconsin, Melissa spent time as a research specialist at the Waisman Center in Madison and more recently as an Audiologist at Milwaukee Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic. “Melissa has a good sense of what our patients need in terms of amplification,” says Bernstein. “But more important is that Melissa is already showing that she can help our patients achieve their goal of better hearing through the use of amplification.” In addition to working at The Hearing Professionals, Melissa is a behavior consultant for individuals with special needs.
