Why are you interested in serving on the Academy board?

I have been lucky to volunteer with the Academy from the time I was a graduate student, and since that time, I have seen it grow and evolve with the ever-changing landscape of audiology. I hope to serve as a board member to provide another voice on behalf of my peers and my students to guide the profession as we continue to evolve. One of the things that I love most about our profession is how multifaceted it is, ranging in setting and service, which allows us as providers to represent our field in areas that few other healthcare sectors could. I hope that by serving as a board member, I can build upon those opportunities for both current and future professionals.
