1. Why did you decide to become an SAA Committee Volunteer?
I decided to become a volunteer because I wanted to continue to give more to SAA. I had served in multiple positions in my local chapter and decided that I wanted to give more at the national level as well. It has been an amazing experience working with my committee!
2. What do your responsibilities include within your committee?
Within my committee I am responsible for compiling all of the social media posts for SAA. Whether it be finding newly published studies, fun articles, or announcements pertaining to SAA events and initiatives; we cover a variety of areas!
3. Within the profession of Audiology, what are your primary interests?
I honestly haven’t found my primary interest yet! I love hearing aids for the aspect of the continued patient care and getting to know the patient. I love vestibular testing for the sheer fun of trying to put the pieces of testing together and what the patient is reporting in order to determine a diagnosis. At my externship site, I’ll be seeing a wide variety of services, so maybe I’ll have a better idea in a year.
