Allison Holmberg, MS, CCC-A/SLP has acquired ownership of Hampshire Hearing Services, which has successfully transitioned to Hampshire Hearing & Speech Services, LLC.  Ms. Holmberg's experience and expertise in both audiology and speech-language pathology will reinforce, solidify, and expand our existing clinical and patient-related capabilities of the business. Her dual licensure in audiology and speech-language pathology achieves positive benefits for both adult and pediatric clients with hearing, auditory, speech, and language concerns.

Her strong commitment to, and recognition of, the importance of patient interaction and care remains consistent with the values, established by Glenn Shinner, AuD., the owner of the Hampshire Hearing Services audiology practice over the past 31 years. Dr. Shinner officially retired from the practice in March of 2016. Allison remains dedicated to continue to carry the practice forward with the same philosophy of purpose and dedication to patient care that you have come to expect since 1984.

In August, Hampshire Hearing and Speech Services welcomed Amy Catanzaro, Dr. of Audiology to the practice. Dr. Catanzaro has worked as an audiologist in the Pioneer Valley for the past 20 years.

We continue to strive in making a difference in people’s lives by facilitating  communication to enhance social and human interaction.


The practice’s statement of purpose remains representative of who we are and what we do:

“It’s all about communication,…”
