Position Statement
I have been actively involved with ADA my entire student and professional career and have been continually impressed by the members’ passion, leadership, and the initiatives and projects they tackle. I have a passion for being active in audiology organizations, particularly concerning advocacy efforts, patients’ rights issues, and teaching student leadership. Working as a team to collaborate on national audiology issues is the only way to make meaningful change within our profession and of importance, I will continue to work on passing the Audiology Patient Choice Act to ensure the autonomous future of audiology.

I have been incredibly supported by many mentors within the audiology profession and truly enjoy working as a team and helping other fellow audiologists and students achieve goals and stay informed on current issues. Serving on the ADA board provides an opportunity to give back to an organization that has helped shaped me professionally. I will work to build autonomy, grow our profession, and thrive in our changing healthcare market.
