“When I compare our field to other medical professionals, the field of audiology is relativity new. In college, I was drawn to this field because it intrigued me that audiology began after World War II when servicemen were coming back with hearing loss due to the noise trauma in combat. It seemed like there was so much breakthrough to be made. Although this field is not life or death, it is quality of life.”
