Ashlee Vandiver

2021 Nominee

Building LA

Owner/Doctor of Audiology

Red Maple Audiology

Nominator’s Comments:
“Dr. Ashlee opened the doors to her private practice Red Maple Audiology in Turner in March 2020, just days before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Maine. Faced with a rapidly changing business and health environment, she immediately took action to ensure people across Central and Western Maine needing essential services for hearing loss were not forgotten. Dr. Ashlee quickly adapted her practice to remain open by offering varied office hours, providing curbside appointments and telehealth services. Over the past 18 months, Dr. Ashlee has expanded Red Maple to a team of 6, creating jobs, giving back to the Turner and surrounding communities though sponsorships, and creation of Hearing the Call – Red Maple Roots, a local project of the National 501c3 organization that gives a hand up to persons with hearing loss living in our community through providing the gift of hearing.” – L. Marschall, Sabattus, Maine
