Hello, I’m Tim Hammers, a Hearing Instrument Specialist for Audibel and Hammers Hearing. I’d like to take a minute to tell you a little bit about myself and to explain why hearing health care is so important to me. I’ve lived in the Illinois Valley area for most of my life, having moved here when I was about 10 years old from Southern Illinois. At North Central College, while receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, I played outside linebacker for the football team. I don’t get to play football too often these days, but I do stay active by playing golf and softball, as well as being part of a bowling league. I very recently married the love of my life, Christa, and we purchased our first home together in Dalzell, IL.
Hearing health has been an important part of my life since I can remember. My dad, Gary Hammers, would always tell stories about his patients who heard birds chirping for the first time or those who would get to truly hear their grandchildren’s laughs. Seeing the gratification my dad received from helping his patients regain their hearing, I knew I wanted to be part of the family practice. I became a licensed Hearing Instrument Specialist about 15 years ago, and have been practicing full time for a little over 10 years. ‘Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life’, I strongly believe that, and sincerely enjoy coming into the office everyday. I want to thank you for taking the first step to better hearing and choosing Audibel and Hammers Hearing. I look forward to getting to know you better.
