Melissa Cannellos, HIS
Hearing Instrument Specialist
Growing up I knew that I had a passion for helping people. During my studies at SUNY Cortland I had the opportunity to enter into the Speech and Hearing Science Program, which reaffirmed my desire to help people and put me on the path to doing so. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech and Hearing Science and am now a licensed hearing instrument specialist.
I have been with Hear For You for about five years now. What I love most about being in this profession is impacting people’s lives in a positive way. Through the patient-focused testing I have had the opportunity to help improve the quality of life that comes from the gift of hearing. It is truly heartwarming when you see someone regain the sense of hearing and when you see the positive impact it has on their life.
I grew up in Gloversville, NY and currently live in Amsterdam, NY. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my fiancé Peter, my golden retriever Sophie, my family and my friends. We often spend our time on the water at Caroga Lake. I enjoy golfing, bowling, and being with friends and family. I continue to look forward to helping people make positive changes in their lives.

Hearing Aid Dispenser
My name is Dana McReavy and I’m a Hearing Aid Dispenser with Hear for You in Albany , New York. I’m new to this practice as a provider, but have been saving hearing lives since 2012 in the Capital Region.
When a loved one is diagnosed with a hearing loss, it effects not only the individual but the whole family. I pride myself in making loved ones a part of the solution . Growing up I experienced familial hearing loss first hand, and it’s what made me get into the audiology profession. My educational background is in social work and nursing and I’ve found that working to treat hearing loss gives me a great platform to do what I am passionate in.
The evaluation of my hearing seemed to be very thorough, as each range of my hearing was evaluated several times and in several different ways. The outcome/summary rang true based on my personal experience. The technician was very patient, attentive, and personable. There is not much more I could've hoped...Sylvia Ives, on Google
