Natalie Crespi, M.A., CCC-A
Natalie Crespi has practiced audiology since 2002. She joined Kendall Audiology in 2006.
“From an early age, I was always fascinated with science and enjoyed helping others. While studying at the University of Florida, I took some classes related to speech and hearing and immediately felt that this field was a perfect fit for me. I feel extremely blessed to be able to bring sound back into the lives of so many people. I see every patient as an individual with their own unique set of hearing needs, whether it is helping an infant hear in order to develop speech and language, helping a child so they can hear their parents and teachers, improving an adult’s understanding of speech so they can once again communicate in a variety of settings with their family and friends, or simply adding in pleasurable sounds such as those heard in nature or at a symphony.”
Prior to becoming part of the Kendall Audiology family, Natalie completed a fellowship sponsored by Cochlear Americas at the University of Miami Ear Institute. She practiced there for several years, specializing in diagnostic audiology and cochlear implants.
Natalie was raised in Clermont, a small town in central Florida. After completing graduate school in California, she returned to her birth town of Miami where she resides with her husband and two daughters. Outside of the office, she enjoys exploring beaches and biking with her family, traveling, and rooting for her favorite team. Go Gators!
