Hearing Aids and Audiology in Duluth, MN
Meet Our Team
Dr. Carey Bailey
Dr. Carey was first introduced into the world of Audiology through a mentorship with her Basic Audiology professor at Marshall University. Through this mentorship, she was able to see the impact that Audiologists have on everyone they encounter. Inspired by the stories shared with her during this mentorship, Dr. Carey changed her projected career path and began working towards becoming an Audiologist.
Dr. Carey completed her fourth-year residency at the Hershel “Woody” Williams VAMC in Huntington, WV, and has provided services in the private sector, hospitals, and ENT clinics. She received her doctorate degree from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in April 2021 and received her
undergraduate degree from Marshall University in Huntington, WV in 2017. One of her main drives is to encourage individuals to be proactive about their hearing health – whether it be treating their hearing loss with amplification when appropriate or protecting their hearing with personal protective devices – and for people to view their hearing health the same way they do their physical health.
Originally from West Virginia, Dr. Carey joined Audiology Concepts in August 2021. She has two cats, Tiberius and CeCe, and has plans to eventually adopt a dog. In her free time, Dr. Carey enjoys listening to True Crime podcasts, binge-watching TV shows and movies on various streaming services, and she plans to read at least 50 books by the end of 2022. If you have any book recommendations, please let her know!

Karri ensures that the practice is running smoothly and efficiently. She oversees Human Resources, training, accounts receivable/payable, tracking and strategic planning for the office.
“As a hearing aid wearer myself, I understand personally how hearing loss can affect your life and how important hearing instruments are to keeping you connected to family, friends, work and everyday life.”
Karrie received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas in Business and her Master of Business Administration from Bethel University in 2009.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son doing many activities related to sports, the outdoors and family.
Joanna is pleased to be your first contact in the front office as well as on the phone. Her goal is to provide our patients with excellent service by welcoming them, handling paperwork, and making and confirming appointments. She keeps the flow of visits as smooth as possible.
Joanna’s background is in Education, so it comes natural for her to help educate patients on the how’s and why’s of hearing treatment. Her favorite part of her job is the friendships she makes with patients.
She enjoys spending as much time outdoors in the summer and looks forward to gardening and landscaping her yard. Reading, needlework and her two grown daughters and a granddaughter keep her busy when she is not in the office.
