Lori Klein Gardner, Au.D., FAAA
Doctor of Audiology and President
Dr. Lori began her professional career forty years ago as a staff audiologist then audiology supervisor at the Medical College of Virginia Hospitals where she helped establish the first hospital hearing aid dispensing program in Richmond. In 1992, Dr. Lori left MCV for Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Hospital and later worked at Maico Hearing Aid Service.
In 2003, Dr. Lori turned a life long dream into reality with the establishment of our company, Hear Virginia LLC. Dr. Lori’s extensive expertise in hearing technology, rehabilitation, and demonstrated commitment to optimal patient-centered care provide a solid foundation to find practical solutions to improve hearing–and quality of life.
Dr. Lori also provides voluntary Audiology services in the greater Richmond area as well as being part of “remote area medical” teams that travel to Appalachia and Southwest Virginia. Dr. Lori is a member of the Advisory Board of Deaf/Hard of Hearing Advocacy and is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Audiology Foundation of America. She lives in western Henrico County where she spends much of her free time planning, sewing , and completing quilts—including many of the quilts displayed in our office.
Thomas A Casey M.S., FAAA
Thom has provided audiology services at Southside VA Training Center and was an audiologist at Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Hospital.
She recently retired from the Virginia Department of Health where she served as an epidemiologist (we can all imagine what the past two years of her life has been like!).
Carolyn is a classically trained singer and in her free time shares her vocal talents as a cantor/music minister at her local church. She is happy to be at Hear Virginia working with the best of patients and work family.
Although Dr. Lori promises that there will be another “nice” president one day, she just has not found the right successor to this kind and gentle animal.
