Alexandra (Alex) Alfieri is a third-year doctor of audiology student at Pacific University and extern at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health. She is excited to continue her role as Oregon’s first SAA State Ambassador for another year. Her interest in audiology started during her undergraduate education at Syracuse University, where she earned a BS in communication sciences and disorders. Moving across the country to pursue an AuD allowed her to grow and discover her interests in educational audiology, vestibular assessment, and inter-professional education. She started her first year as president of Pacific University’s chapter of SAA, and has only become more involved in all organizations since. Alex is very hopeful to connect and motivate students in Oregon!
