1. Where do you hope to see yourself in five years?
In private practice and teaching as an adjunct professor.

2. What are your plans for the Advocacy Committee this year?
This year, we are really looking to beef up the resources that are available to students to make advocacy events simple and fun!  So, keep your eye out for training opportunities, ready-made quick fact resources, and how-to documents that will help to make your next advocacy event an overwhelming success!

3. What advice would you give to current AuD students?
My advice is fairly simple: Keep your finger on the pulse of your profession and stay involved.  We are all stewards of our chosen profession and should always keep the needs of audiologists and our patients paramount.

4. Tell us a fun fact about you!
In my down time, you’ll either find me Netflixing or on the golf course.  But, in the fall, every Saturday is sacred; I’m a huge college football fan!
