Meet Heather Marie Cones, Au.D.
Heather Cones, Au.D., originates from a small farm community located in northwest Illinois. She completed her undergraduate training in Communication Disorders at California State University Los Angeles, where participation in competitive speaking and an internship in speech-language pathology ignited in her a passion for the speech and hearing sciences; she received her bachelor’s degree in 2007. She went on to complete her doctoral program at University of California San Diego-San Diego State University in 2011.
Dr. Cones is passionate about her job and feels blessed to have chosen a career that allows her to make a positive impact in others’ lives. She firmly believes that the proper approach to improving hearing and fitting hearing aids is by following a model of hearing healthcare, offering a comprehensive package also including aural rehabilitation, scientific verification measure, and consistent follow-up. Her foremost priority is enhancing the quality of life and communication for her patients!
Having returned to her small-town roots, Dr. Cones lives in Poway with her husband Ryan, their daughter Cassidy, their son River, and their two dogs and cats. The family enjoys picnics in the park, camping, crafting at home, and biking at the beach.
