Buddy graduated from the University of Colorado, and has 30 years experience in business, finance, and information systems. He has applied these skills in the field of Audiology since he became “interested in ears” during Mante Mexico Medical Missions. Buddy’s thirst for knowledge led him to get his board certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences, and his ability to fix things now extends to hearing aids.  It has been said that Buddy “never met an earmold or hearing aid that he didn’t think he could tweak to fit better”.

Chris and Buddy live in the Louisville area with their two dogs, Gus and Sam.  They work hard to keep track of the activities of five adult children, three grandchildren, and three elderly (93, 93, and 98) parents.

Nina Perry
Office Manager

Nina has lived in Colorado for the past 25 years. After spending time on both the east and west coasts, Colorado had that “just right” feeling of home! Following completion of her business degree from CU Boulder, Nina worked as a Project Coordinator for a local translation company, Office Manager for a home health company and bookkeeper for a few local businesses. Fun things she picked up along the way include being a licensed fork lift driver; that you can learn all the names for the different pieces of PVC; and that no work is possible without coffee and venti vanilla lattes! Best job ever – being a mom to her son and daughter! So happy to have found Buddy and Chris and their delightful patients!
