Dr. Stachura is passionate about bringing the world back to people through the gift of sound. She believes that with better hearing comes an improved quality of life, not only for her patients, but also for their loved ones. People often pursue better hearing in order to communicate with others better and free themselves from isolation that hearing loss can cause. In addition, simply hearing sounds again that one forgot existed over time can make their experience truly remarkable. Dr. Stachura recognizes that every person’s experience is unique, as everyone has different needs and is going through different challenges. She is devoted to listening to her patients and taking the time needed in order to effectively change their lives for the better.
In her free time, Dr. Stachura enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She enjoys camping, gardening, crafting, and traveling!
