I am currently a third year graduate student at the University of Connecticut pursuing my Doctor of Audiology. My passion for Audiology began while studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. I had the privilege of interning at a center designed for children with hearing impairment and additional disabilities. The center takes an interdisciplinary approach while being family centered, two things that have shaped my ultimate long-term goal of opening a similar center in the United States. As a pediatric audiology LEND trainee, I am dedicated to gaining more knowledge and experience that will guide what a center like this should truly be comprised of. I am excited for this opportunity, as I will be able to use my passion for working with children and adolescents with disabilities, and their families, and become a more diverse and knowledgeable pediatric audiologist.
