Jocelyn Tubbs, AuD, has been a practicing audiologist since 2019. She earned her bachelor’s of science in communication disorders at Bowling Green State University, in Bowling Green, Ohio. She then attended Pacific University, in Hillsboro, Oregon, where she completed her doctorate of audiology. Dr. Tubbs currently practices at Alpine Ear, Nose, and Throat, in Colorado. She has such a fiery passion for audiology that she wrote a children’s book, A Sound Adventure, to help teach younger generations and their parents about how hearing works.
Not only does she have a passion for audiology, but also justice for minorities. Dr. Tubbs is the co-founder of the group Black Audiologists United, a Facebook group and growing community of Black Audiologists and Black Audiology students. She has been a part of many discussions about the hardships and discrimination many Black and people of color face as audiologists and in the health-care field in general. Her goal is to help increase representation among leadership roles within audiology, and to inspire others to do the same.
