Michael Bailey, HAS, BC-HIS
Hearing Aid Specialist and Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist
Mike grew up in south Florida before Disney World arrived. After graduating from University of North Florida he headed for San Francisco where he earned his license to dispense hearing aids in 1991. A short time later he became National Board Certified. When not helping the hearing impaired he spends his free time sailing.
He enjoys the feeling of getting so much more than simply a paycheck for the work he does. The sense of fulfillment is what keeps him coming back. Several years ago he returned to his roots in south Florida and lives aboard a sailboat with two cats named Captain Cook and The Tempest. His other hobbies include writing fiction and playing golf.

I am a true Florida Native, Born in Jacksonville Fl. My parents relocated my brother and I to Orlando Florida where we stayed till we moved to Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area. This is where I lived until Hurricane Charley took everything I owned which caused my daughter and I to relocate to Lakeland Florida, where we stayed for the last 10 years. Moved back to Fl 3 years ago to be closer to my mom. Learning to be on my own for the first time. Scary, challenging but I finally think that I am starting to settle and like it.
