RITA MCWILLIAMS, AU.D.

Dr. Rita McWilliams is a board-certified and licensed audiologist. She holds her Doctoral Degree in Audiology from Arizona School of Health Sciences. Rita also holds her certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association as well as her B.A. in Speech and Hearing and her M.A. in Audiology. Dr. McWilliams has worked with various professionals from Ear, Nose, and Throat physicians to private practices in Eureka, Auburn, and Redding California before opening her private practice in 1985. Dr. McWilliams is specialized in aural rehabilitation, tinnitus management, and many other ear and hearing loss issues. Her patients describe her as well-informed, warm, caring, and a compassionate person who truly cares about their hearing health. Outside of her private practice, Rita enjoys gardening, traveling, and spending time with her parents and daughters.

BRENNA PETERS, AU.D.

Dr. Brenna Peters is a clinical audiologist with specialized training in hearing conservation, tinnitus, and animal audiology. She obtained her doctorate in audiology (Au.D.) degree from the University of Northern Colorado in 2018 and received her bachelor’s in audiology and speech-language sciences in 2014. Her initial career plan was to become a speech-language pathologist as someone close to her struggled with speech processing, but then ended up pursuing audiology as she loved the coursework. Since graduating in 2018, Dr. Peters has worked at several ear, nose, and throat (ENT) practices — most recently in Portland, Oregon, prior to moving home to Redding to practice within her community. She is passionate about delivering research-based, patient-centered information. Her goal is to have patients leave the office feeling comfortable with taking control of their hearing health care. Outside of work, you will find Dr. Peters enjoying the outdoors alongside her husband and their golden retriever.
