While at the University of Florida, she played trumpet in the Fightin' Gator Marching Band. Her musical background played a major role in her decision to focus her studies on hearing science. She earned her Doctorate in Audiology at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. In 2005, Dr. Loomis returned to Florida to complete her clinical externship in audiology at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando.
Dr. Loomis relocated to Cookeville, Tennessee in 2006 when she accepted the role of pediatric specialist for a five-audiologist private practice that served the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. The Hearing Centers were later acquired by Upper Cumberland Otolaryngology, a six-physician ENT clinic, where Dr. Loomis continued to practice as the Upper Cumberland's only pediatric audiologist. She specialized in electrophysiologic measures of auditory function, newborn hearing, and pediatric hearing aid fittings.
In 2011, Dr. Loomis returned to Orlando with her husband and their two young children to join the CENTA team.
