Why Audiology?

Marissa Leese always knew she wanted to work in healthcare, but didn’t know what area was right for her. During her undergraduate degree, she signed up for a few speech and language courses and found that American Sign Language courses captured her attention most. Most of her American Sign Language course instructors were deaf and hard-of-hearing. She loved learning their stories, what they thought of cochlear implants, etc. Leese found a passion for working with the deaf and hard-of-hearing community and the variety that audiology had to offer. Ever since, she has been thankful for her career in audiology and finds it rewarding to be able to work with patients of all ages.
