How long have you been employed at UMMC; what is your sub-specialty and why did you choose this area to focus on?"I started at UMMC in January of 2016. I specialize in pediatric audiology concentrating on electrophysiological measures of hearing and implantable devices. What is one thing you wish your patients knew about audiology?"That a child is never "too young" for our services. I hear far too often comments such as "well they are too young for hearing aids" or "how could you possibly tell if a baby can hear, they can't raise their hand".
What is the one thing you wish your patients knew about the relationship of ENT health/early testing as it pertains to audiology?"The importance of early detection of hearing loss and the direct relationship between speech and language development".
Where did you get you education/degree from?"I received my Doctorate Degree in Audiology from Idaho State University. I received my Bachelor Degree in Psycology from the Mississippi University for Women".Is there anything you would like for your patients to know about yourself?"I love what I do!"
