Jackie Thornton joined Hearing Doctors in summer 2019. Her experience in front desk administration and dedication to serving patients make her a valuable part of the Hearing Doctors team. Thornton works in the Manhattan office but helps schedule appointments at the Clay Center, Marysville and Junction City locations. She enjoys making sure schedules run smoothly and that both patients and doctors are happy.
“The Office Manager position is my dream job and the opportunity came at the perfect time in my life to start a new career with Hearing Doctors.”
Thornton moved to Manhattan to attend K-State in 2003 from Wetmore. Her family spent a few years in Rhode Island and moved back to Manhattan in 2012.
On the weekends, Thornton and her family are a Kansas City Barbeque Society competition barbeque team. They have been competing throughout Kansas since 2017 in the Ribs, Pork, Chicken and Brisket categories. They also enjoy catering events like weddings and graduations and hope to someday own a food trailer so they can sell their barbeque on the go.
When they aren’t competing, Thornton and her family love to watch Patriots football. Thornton and her son often play catch with his football in their backyard.
“I love being able to help a patient with their hearing aids and see them leave happy!”
