I received my Master’s degree in Audiology from the university of Montana in 1986. I worked at the University of Kansas Medical center for a few years as a pediatric audiologist. I then took a position with Nicolet Biomedical’s Project Phoenix, the first digital hearing aid, as a research Audiologist. That is when I fell in love with research. After the project ended I worked in a neurology lab doing evoked potential and otoacoustic emission studies. I then stayed home for 10 years to work on raising my 4 kids. When I went back to work it was with Grayson-Stadler as a Clinical Applications specialist for their audiodiagnostic line of products. I also worked for a few years at Badger Popcorn, it was a delicious job! Now I am thrilled to be working with Dr. Litovsky on the Adult Down Syndrome project and with Dr. Roche investigating pupillometry as a tool for pre- and post-surgical assessment.
