I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from The Wichita State University. I then traveled to Vanderbilt University to complete a M.S. in Audiology and Hearing Sciences, before completing a clinical fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI with Dr. Gary Jacobson. I subsequently completed a Ph.D. at Northwestern University in Communication Disorders with Dr. Beverly Wright exploring patterns of perceptual learning in individuals with normal hearing. Upon completion of my doctorate, I moved to the New York University School of Medicine for a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Otolaryngology. There, I worked with Dr. Mario Svirsky to identify recipients of cochlear implants who have not yet fully adapted to their device, and to provide tools which audiologists could use to modify the map to help these patients. I later joined the faculty at NYU, and also at Montclair State University. In 2015 I became the Chief of Audiology at Stanford, where I oversee the Audiology departments of both Stanford Hospital and the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital.
