Amy Staggs

Regional Office Manager

Amy Staggs joined Starkey HearCare in 2018 as a Regional Administrative Manager. In July of 2020 I was promoted to Regional Manager of South Florida. Connecting people back to their world is a passion of mine as I love seeing the smiles on patients faces when they are able to hear their spouses again. I enjoy helping our employees provide exceptional customer service, teaching and guiding them to help save hearing lives.

In 2020 I have begun schooling to become a Hearing Instrument Specialist to perfect my craft and personally reconnect more people to their worlds. I look forward to meeting you in our offices!

In my free time I love spending time on the soccer fields with my two boys and traveling the state of Florida visiting new state parks and amusement parks.

Customer Reviews

I have been a client at the Hallandale Beach office for about 7 years. Although I have been taken care of most satisfactorily by several different audiologists during that time the one constant has been Lilly. The first person to greet you on the phone and in person is Lilly...

Had problems with hearing aids and phone compatibility. Karen the new audiologist managed to solve the problem. Thanks to her I no longer need to get a different phone that was labeled "compatible" by Starkey. Kudos to Karen!💓😆
