Audiologist

Kari Krause received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Central Michigan University in 1989. Kari is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and is an active member and past board member of the Michigan Academy of Audiology. She currently holds an Audiology license from the State of Michigan.

Kari's goal has always been making sure that each individual feels special, and not just a “number”. She wants every person to know that their best interests always come first. Kari's big heart and her passion to help everyone is probably the reasons she just celebrated her 27th Anniversary in private practice!  Kari has witness a lot of changes in this industry but she has always remained true to her vision.    

Kari works out of the Shelby and Lapeer offices, seeing patients and attending to her administrative duties.  She resides in Oxford with her husband AJ, daughter Samantha and her kittens Bandit and Bowie.
