Nice to meet you, 

I'm Dr. Kelsey Kerkhove


I'm a pediatric audiologist with a passion for family centered care.

I have seen first hand the roller coaster of emotions that parents feel when they find out their child has a hearing loss. From sadness, to fear, and ultimately acceptance. My goal is to support you every step of the way.

With a background in diagnosis, treatment, and intervention, I am here to help guide you through your child’s hearing journey.

After all, hearing loss impacts the entire family as communication is the heart of all relationships.



Dr. Kelsey's education & credentials


Originally from the midwest, I attended Purdue University for my undergraduate training, majoring in Communication Sciences Disorders. 

I stayed at Purdue to complete my Clinical Doctorate in Audiology and then went back home to Cincinnati, Ohio to complete my pediatric residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. That’s where I found my passion for pediatric audiology and family centered care!

I now reside in sunny Southern California and practice at a large medical center where I see children of all ages, backgrounds, and social circumstances.

I love what I do, but I wanted to find a way to connect with families outside of the walls of the clinic or hospital, which led me here. Thank you for following along, I can’t wait to meet you!
