Natalie M. McKee earned Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL and a Clinical Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from Salus University. Her experiences include clinical settings in the Rockford area, Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, NE and the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI.
Dr. McKee purchased Bloomington-Normal Audiology in 2012, after 7 years of understudy with the original owner, Dr. Deborah Pitcher. BNA was the first private practice audiology clinic in Bloomington-Normal when it began in 1990; building a reputation of providing state-of-the art technology in audiology to Central Illinois. Dr. McKee is honored to continue BNA’s esteemed reputation.
Dr. McKee chose the field of Audiology following the diagnosis of her own hearing loss. She feels that this personal experience allows her to better understand and assist the patients she sees. She enjoys working with patients of all ages and has special expertise in evaluating persons with dizziness/vestibular disorders. This expertise has led to a partnership with Central Illinois Institute of Balance to provide a comprehensive assessment in their balance clinic.
Active participation in the community is important to Dr. McKee. This began with her experiences as an exchange student to Norway in 1995. Since then, she has remained in contact with her ‘adoptive’ family in Norway. She is also a member of the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees and has served as their Administrative VP, President, and Chairman of the Board.
Dr. McKee is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and Illinois Academy of Audiology (ILAA), earned her Certificate of Clinical Competency in Audiology (CCC-A) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and is licensed to practice Audiology by the State of Illinois. She remains active locally by representing the ILAA at the Illinois Junior Academy of Science State Science Fair as a specialty judge for those projects dealing with hearing science and sound.
Dr. McKee can be seen at our Bloomington office as well as our Pontiac office for hearing related concerns. For balance related concerns, she provides assessments at Central Illinois Institute of Balance located at 211 Landmark Drive, Suite E3 in Normal.
