We had the good fortune of connecting with Nichole Kovel and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nichole, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
People imagine that purchasing hearing aids benefits those who are nearly deaf and the ONLY improvement is only to hear better. In reality, leaving even mild hearing loss untreated is linked to earlier rates of cognitive decline and higher risk of falls. Treating hearing loss with hearing aids improves brain health, balance AND communication.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
ELITE HEARING of Colorado Springs was established on principals that everyone deserves to be able to communicate and engage in conversation and everyone deserves the type of care and health education that positively impacts their lives. Better hearing is a journey and one that we are ready to take WITH you.

Establishing a successful practice based on these principals hasn’t always been easy. But then we partnered with a non-profit to help those without means to obtain quality hearing technology and our services for free. Now I have the right team members who stand for the level of patient care I do. And my dream of elite hearing care for everyone in the Colorado Springs area has come true!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The biggest draw to Colorado Springs has to be the beauty of the outdoors, right in our backyards. A long bike ride through the epic Garden of the Gods is top of the list to do. Get some rest before you come because we are going to climb our way up 2,768 steps of the incline to enjoy one of Colorado’s best views on Pikes Peak. On our way back, we have to stroll through the shops of eclectic Manitou Springs and stop for wine at Swirl or Wines of Colorado. We will grab some ice-cream at The Creamery in Old Colorado City while we shop some more. If I haven’t tuckered you out yet, let’s grab an e-scooter and check out the downtown scene for entertainment and great food!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Throughout Colorado, there are many smart and caring Audiologists keeping Audiology caring and honest by owning their own practice. So many times, practices are owned by large corporations, insurance companies and even the manufacturers. I was moved to open my own practice seeing my mentors across the state helping patients with hearing healthcare in ways that were honest, innovative and improving the lives they touched.
