Welcome! I recently set up this website in hopes of providing audiological assistance and resources for students who have hearing loss. It is currently the beginning of June, 2020 and, if viewing my page, you likely know that Everett Public Schools closed on March 13,2020 to help combat the novel coronavirus pandemic. While we had hoped to return to school/work on April 27, that changed to not returning until at the earliest next school year and students have continued to learn remotely. Feel free to explore my site. I hope you will find some useful information.
Once school reopens, I will resume my usual duties and look forward to working 'in person' to assist students (and be a resource for their families as needed), teachers and other staff of students who have hearing loss. In addition, our other district audiologist, Allison Quinn, and myself will work together to implement our hearing screening program. Because some hearing losses can be difficult to identify, state law requires that all students who are in grades kindergarten through three, five and seven have their hearing screened annually; students in other grades are screened on request.
About me: I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Audiology from Western Washington University in late 1987 and have proudly been with Everett Public Schools for the last 21 years. I hold an Educational Staff Associate (ESA) certification which allows me to work in the Washington state school system. Prior to working in Everett Public Schools, I worked in Clinical Audiology (in Ear, Nose and Throat clinics) and briefly in Industrial Audiology (monitoring the hearing of people who work in noise and educate them on how to protect their hearing from hearing loss due to excessive noise). I hold my Washington State Audiology license and occasionally fill in at a local ENT clinic.
In my free time I enjoy skiing, boating, bicycling, reading and spending time with family. A fun (or funny) background fact about myself is that when I was in college I had a goldfish named Pete who lived for many years. Our current family pet is Ruby, a miniature long-haired dachshund who we adopted as a twelve week old puppy in late 2010.
