Dr. Joanne Conter – Audiologist Profile

Dr. Joanne Conter

I am originally from the Cleveland area of Ohio, but I grew up in Clearwater, FL. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders from Western Carolina University, my Master of Science degree in Audiology from University of South Florida, and my Doctor of Audiology degree from A.T. Still University. I began working with Dan Gardner in 1985. I developed a passion for Audiology my junior year of college and has never wavered. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping people hear better! I am married (Dan) and have one daughter (Rachel), who is graduating from the Doctor of Audiology program at USF in 2017. I am an animal lover and have a dog, a cat, two parrots, and a horse. I enjoy cycling, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. I also love to cook!
