Heather Murphy is the Administrator for American Hearing Aid Center. Heather, an only child, grew up in Pavo, Georgia surrounded by a loving family and community. From a young age, she loved to swim, roller skate, and ride four-wheelers for fun. She learned rhythm and movement by taking gymnastics and dance classes, singing in the choir, and playing the saxophone. As her love of music and dance grew, Heather trained to perform with the Thomas County Band and Dazzlers, the Dance Academy, and Music and Drama Troupe in Thomasville, Georgia. During her Senior year, Heather participated in Thomas College Post-Secondary Options (PSO) program. Heather graduated from Thomas County Central High School in May 1999 as Valedictorian.
In fall of 1999, Heather enrolled in the two-year Pre-Pharmacy Program at Mercer University College of Liberal Arts in Macon, Georgia. Upon completion, she moved to Mercer’s Atlanta Campus to pursue her professional education in pharmacy. In 2005, Heather graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mercer University Southern School of Pharmacy with a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree. While in Atlanta studying, a classmate introduced Heather to a handsome fellow, Jason Murphy. In 2005, they married, moved to Valdosta, Georgia, and began their individual careers. For 13 years, Heather worked as a full-time retail pharmacist in Valdosta. She continues to utilize her knowledge as a PRN pharmacist for a locally owned pharmacy.
In 2009, Heather embraced Jason’s dream of owning a hearing aid business. With much guidance, they opened American Hearing Aid Center in Thomasville, Georgia. Heather ensures the office is equipped with the necessary tools for staff to provide the best hearing aid care. As a team, Heather oversees business operations and Jason delivers customized hearing aid care to every patient. Together, they strive to strengthen their business by going above and beyond customer expectations.
In her time, Heather loves making memories with family, especially gathering for a home-cooked meal. Heather looks forward to daily walks and time spent with her husband, Jason, and their fur-baby, Cotton. Nights are full of entertainment with visits from Cotton’s Husky friends, Jax and Mav. Heather prefers a tidy house decorated seasonally especially for Christmas. She enthusiastically awaits family beach trips. Heather has grown to love Saturdays in Athens, Georgia. She anticipates the chilling Battle Hymn trumpet solo and Larry Munson’s narration “Glory, Glory to ole’ Georgia” as Bulldog Nation stands ready to yell two simple words… “Go Dawgs!”
