Dr. Deborah Wilson Clark

Audiologist, Founder

I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. I have a master’s degree in audiology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a doctorate degree in audiology (Au.D.) from Salus University.

The early years of my career were in large university and hospital settings. I spent eight years at The Bill Wilkerson Hearing and Speech Center and Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. As a young audiologist, I received guidance from some of the best audiologists and otologists in the world. It was a stimulating environment with exposure to a wide range of patients with various communication and health issues.


Dr. Jane H. Baxter

Audiologist, Founder

I grew up locally in Los Altos. My father and grandfather were both ear, nose, and throat physicians. I earned a BS in psychology at UC Santa Barbara and went to graduate school in education and rehabilitation at UC Berkeley. After a brief career as a teacher, I went back to SF State University for my MS in audiology-communication disorders. Later, I earned a doctorate in audiology from Salus University.

I began my career educating deaf children and loved it so much that I continued my education in audiology. I spent my early years at Stanford University Medical Center and the VA Hospital. This gave me invaluable experience in dealing with the medical aspects of audiology. I became an early partner in Pacific Hearing Service because I wanted to allow the time needed to provide the best care possible for each of my patients.


Dr. Valerie Kun


I was born and raised in Los Angeles, where I obtained my undergraduate degree at California State University, Los Angeles. I moved to the Midwest to obtain my Au.D. at Northwestern University.

I have a few family ties to audiology: my mother is a hearing aid dispenser, and my older sister is an audiologist. Since I was young, I grew up with a knowledge of the hearing healthcare field and what it can provide for people with a hearing loss. I decided to pursue this career and fell in love with it! I completed my clinical externship year at Pacific Hearing Service and stayed on afterwards as a part of the team. One of my passions is providing healthcare to those who lack access to it, which I’m able to do by being a part of Pacific Hearing Connection, the non-profit arm of Pacific Hearing Service, and joining international humanitarian trips.
