Adrea Oyler has been the Operations Manager at Worth Hearing Center since 2007. Albuquerque is Adrea’s hometown. Every day she looks for an opportunity to make a tangible difference in people’s lives. Helping people hear better and being part of a locally owned small business are things in which she takes immense pride. Adrea lives for the transformations that take place at Worth Hearing Center. For instance, a 90-year-old patient came in with a frown, having resisted hearing aids for years. As the patient left with a radiant smile, Adrea’s sense of purpose was renewed. On the weekends, Adrea can be found playing sand volleyball, camping, running, reading, or even painting furniture.

She loves her family and the great outdoors.
