A Conversation with Michelle Hu, Creator of Mama Hu Hears!
Her unique and personal experiences lend to her innate ability to relate and be a role model for others who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH). She also serves as a source of strength and hope for parents of DHH children.
As a military spouse and mother of three, Michelle strives to balance family life, clinical practice and entrepreneurship. During her maternity leave with her second child, she found herself missing the relationships created while in the clinic with patients. Thus, Mama Hu Hears was created as a space to connect back to her passion and share both personal and professional experiences with hearing loss and within the field of audiology.
When Mama Hu Hears was created, thousands of people within the DHH community (especially parents of DHH children) reached out to her for help, guidance and to share their stories. Michelle knew she had found her purpose and made it her mission to do something more to support those who needed her and related to her the most. She has created an online program titled "My Child Has Hearing Loss, Now What?" to support anxious and doubtful parents on their DHH journey and to provide hearing healthcare professionals valuable and functional knowledge to improve and maximize the outcomes for clients.
