Meet Your Audiological Team

Kathy Rawls, Au.D., CCC-A

Owner & Clinical Audiologist

Welcome to a world where clarity of sound is not just an expectation—it’s your reality. Dr. Kathy Rawls invites you on a journey to rediscover the rich tapestry of sounds that life has to offer through personalized hearing care and state-of-the-art solutions.

At the heart of our practice lies a commitment to transforming lives by enhancing communication capabilities. Whether it’s the whisper of a loved one, the intricate notes of your favorite symphony, or the essential cues in your bustling work environment, Dr. Kathy Rawls ensures you won’t miss a beat.

With years of expertise, Dr. Rawls combines her professional knowledge with her personal passions for photography and music—specifically cello playing—to cultivate an environment where patients feel understood and cared for. She knows that like every picture she captures and each melody she plays on her cello, every person’s hearing journey is unique.

Kim Moon, B.A.

Audiology Assistant & Billing Specialist

Although Kim grew up in the land of the very enthusiastic Nebraska Cornhuskers she found her way free to Colorado College nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. She graduated with the not-so-useful, but very interesting degree in English. After many meanderings Kim found her way into the world of communications – more specifically, Audiology. For the last eight years Kim has worked for a non-profit clinic for speech and hearing before joining the team at Rankin Audiology. Excited to be working with Kristin and Kathy, Kim strives to create a welcoming space and high quality care where everyone can get the services they need to have successful connections with their community.
 
When she is not answering the phone Kim enjoys going for bike rides with her husband, Bill, and her dog, Pearl (especially their new e-bikes which makes going up hills much more fun!). Spending time gardening, making things, and hanging out with her grown kids also feed her soul.

Virginia Schneider, B.A.

Patient Care Coordinator

Virginia is a native Spanish and English speaker and is proficient in German. She grew up in El Paso, Texas and received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at El Paso.
 
Virginia recently moved to the Denver area after spending the last several years in Germany, where she worked as an English teacher and private tutor. She has experience working with young and school-aged children, both as a teacher and as an au-pair. She joined the Rawls Clinical Audiology team in November 2023. We couldn’t be happier to have her with us!
 
When Virginia is not in the office, she enjoys exploring Denver with her husband. She is quite an avid reader, and you can often find her nose in a book over lunch. She also loves arts and crafts of all kinds, particularly knitting and creating hand sewn dolls for her nieces and nephew.

Meet Your Emotional Support Team

A cute dog named Wrigley

Wrigley

A Very Good Boy

The founder of our Emotional Support Team, a four-legged friend who is more than just a pet – meet Wrigley. With his boundless energy and infectious joy, he has a knack for brightening up even the gloomiest of days.

Wrigley is a people-pleaser – his greatest joy comes from being around people and making them smile. His wagging tail and playful antics are a testament to his love for human companionship, and he has a unique ability to sense when someone needs a little extra comfort or a friendly paw to hold.

When he’s not offering emotional support, Wrigley can be found playing outside, exploring new scents, chasing after balls, or simply basking in the sun. His zest for life is contagious, and he has a way of making every day feel like an adventure.

But what truly sets Wrigley apart is his ability to bring joy to those around him. His unwavering positivity and loving nature make him a beacon of happiness for everyone he meets. Whether it’s with a gentle nuzzle, a game of fetch, or simply lying quietly by someone’s side, Wrigley knows how to bring comfort and joy in his own special way.

In short, Wrigley is more than just a dog – he’s a ray of sunshine, a loyal companion, and an integral part of our Emotional Support Team. His love for people and passion for play make him a true bundle of joy, proving that sometimes, the best form of emotional support comes with four legs and a wagging tail.

Pearl

A Very Good Girl

Rounding out our Emotional Support Team is a gem named Pearl. She isn’t just any dog; she’s an essential part of our team, providing comfort, companionship, and unconditional love to those who need it most.

Pearl has a zest for life that is truly inspiring. She loves nothing more than accompanying Kim on bike rides, her ears flapping in the wind and tail wagging with pure joy. These two have shared countless miles and memories together, strengthening their bond with every pedal stroke.

But perhaps Pearl’s most important role is being a faithful companion to Kim’s 92-year-old father-in-law. Her gentle presence brings immense comfort and companionship to his days. The bond between them is undeniable and heartwarming to witness. Pearl’s unwavering loyalty and affection have brought a new lease of life to him, proving that age is just a number when it comes to forming new friendships.

When Pearl isn’t pedaling with Kim or spending quality time with her elderly friend, she enjoys lounging in sunny spots and indulging in her favorite treats. But at the end of the day, her true passion lies in bringing joy and comfort to those around her.
