Thomas Norwood, Au. D. has lived in Portland, Los Angeles and Buffalo, New York, but his family settled in Seattle in the early 1960s. As a child he wanted to be a variety of things including a garbage man, an architect and a graphic designer. As an adult he went on to pursue a career as an audiologist starting at the University of Washington where he obtained his bachelor of science degree in communication disorders as well as his masters in speech pathology and audiology. He then received his doctor of audiology degree from the University of Florida. Tom is one of the founders of our clinic and has been here since we opened in 1979. In his years at ESHC he has most enjoyed all of his interactions and memories with patients and staff.
In his spare time Tom likes to travel, listen to music, jog, read biographies, and enjoy the successes of his talented children. He also likes to take advantage of the sunny weather in Palm Springs where his other home is located.
