Meet Dr. Lowkes


Kathy LowkesWhile taking an ‘Anatomy’ class, I became fascinated by the complexities of the human ear and decided to become an Audiologist.

I received my Masters Degree in Audiology from the University of Connecticut and my Doctorate in Audiology from the Arizona School of Health Sciences.

Having fallen in love with Vermont while attending UVM, I returned in 2001 and have practiced audiology in the Manchester area ever since.
