Meet Tara Schmidt

Doctor of Audiology

Tara Schmidt graduated with her Doctorate Degree in Audiology from Idaho State University, and has been helping La Grande to achieve better hearing since joining the Audiology & Hearing Aid Associates team.

Her favorite part of her role is helping patients by evaluating their hearing, discussing their communication concerns and providing a treatment plan to meet their needs.

A stand-out moment during her time at Audiology & Hearing Aid Associates has been: “I really enjoy being able to share in our patient’s successes and challenges. Learning about hearing loss, and how to effectively repair communication breakdowns is very important for not just our patient’s but their families as well. When I have a patient that comes in for a follow-up and they are smiling, I know I’ve helped them to overcome what had been a very concerning and (sometimes) isolating period in their life.”

Outside of the office, Tara enjoys the farming life! Here and her husband have three beautiful children. Tara enjoys nature. reading, playing piano, and planning projects.
