1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your educational background?
I was born and raised in Gig Harbor, Washington. I lived there until I came up to Seattle for my undergraduate work at UW. After graduating, I moved to Tempe, Arizona to begin my graduate work at Arizona State University. I enjoyed the warm “winters” there, however the summers were unbearable! I am happy to be back in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, completing the final year of my doctorate at ESHC.
2. What is it that made you want to be an Audiologist?
I always knew that I wanted a career in the medical field, where I could really help people. Upon entering UW’s Speech and Hearing Department as an undergrad, just starting on my major, I intended on being an SLP. However, all that changed on the first day of Dr. Werner’s Hearing Science class. I knew immediately that I wanted to be an Audiologist! Since then my passion for audiology has been strong.
3. If you could have one superpower what would it be?
My superpower would be to heal the world, and every living thing on it from pain. Cheesy, I know, but that’s me
4. Who is your favorite musician/band?
My musical tastes range from Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to The Pixies and Social Distortion, and even a bit of Taylor Swift.
5. What has been your favorite moment or part of evergreen so far?
My favorite moment here so far was the All Staff meeting recapping BSHM. I walked away from that meeting feeling blessed to be a part of this wonderful company.
