Dr. Kirsten McWilliams is Rita’s oldest daughter and grew up working in her mother’s practice. When she was five days old, she was already in the office meeting new patients. Kirsten received her B.S. in Psychology from UC Davis and worked as a hearing aid dispenser for four years in the clinic with her mom. She quickly fell in love with audiology and decided to follow her mother’s footsteps and pursue her Doctorate of Audiology. She graduated top-of-her-class from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco’s doctorate program in 2018. During her graduate work, she developed superior skills and knowledge with internship rotations at Stanford, Kaiser, and a private ENT practice. She spent her fellowship year at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento where she gained experience in pediatric audiology, cochlear implants, vestibular evaluations, and diagnostic audiology.
In her spare time, Kirsten volunteers as a board of directors’ member for the California Academy of Audiology, as a Northern California board representative and legislative liaison.
