Mariya Hutto has served patient needs at Chesapeake Hearing Centers since 2002. Her expertise is in guiding patients through the journey to better hearing, including evaluation, counseling on communication strategies, and the fitting and management of hearing aids. She is licensed to dispense hearing aids by the state of Maryland, and sees patients in both Severna Park and Columbia. Her favorite part of working at Chesapeake Hearing Centers is building relationships with the many people she meets every day. They have truly been her greatest teachers. Ms. Hutto graduated magna cum laude from St. Mary’s College of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2000. While there, she studied the workings of the brain, human behavior, and research methods. She also completed several internships to gain hands-on experience with patient care, brain processing, and data analysis. Ms. Hutto earned a master’s degree in Information Science from the University of Maryland in 2006. Ultimately, she decided to put her studies to use in her family’s privately owned, local, and trusted audiology practice where she could carry on her father’s legacy of bringing better hearing to the people in her community. She enjoys reading, writing, yoga, and cycling with her son on the B&A trail.
