In continuing with the interview series, I had the opportunity to speak with Carolyn Pinkerton, AuD, about working with a major manufacturer, private practice, audiology students, and the profession itself.
Dr. Pinkerton is by title an Education and Training Audiologist for Starkey, joining the company in June 2012. She recently earned her ...
For the next few weeks leading up to 2013, I'm going to use the blog to interview a variety of individuals in audiology, ranging from newly minted AuDs, grizzled veterans, and first year students. The purpose of the interview series is to, of course, offer fresh perspective outside of my own ramblings. The questions will be unique for each ...
Life as a 4th-year student working full-time, contending with remaining course work, preparing for an exam, maintaining a weekly blog, Lakers, being a husband, running a website, etc. (you get the idea), can be hectic and requisite of careful daily planning and time management skills. Regardless, I still try to make time to read audiology-related ...
Per my usual Friday routine, I drove to the bank today to deposit my paychecks. I have accounts with two banks, one I use for day-to-day budget and the other serving to chip away at student loans. I can proudly say that the latter has been put to substantial use since early summer, which somewhat eases the all-too-familiar graduate student feeling ...

minute web clip, presented through the eyes of a web-surfer, demonstrates the
most memorable events of the president's tenure as well as more personable
moments, such as ...
It's official. I have a high-frequency hearing loss. According to an online hearing test, that is. My highest threshold to date measured in the sound booth is a whopping 5 dB, which certainly indicates normal hearing sensitivity. Perhaps it is not my place yet to speak on this topic as a student, but I have a hard time believing that a movement ...
I have officially started my new practicum placement at the VA hospital in North Little Rock. This placement also doubles as my assistantship, allowing for hourly pay and, more importantly, more practicum hours. In any given week, I may log 16-20 hours of practicum, which is solid for a third-year student. I was told that I would get more ...
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) issued a news release this week stressing the importance of consumers seeing a hearing health practitioner before purchasing hearing aids.
Noting the increasing availability of options for purchasing hearing aids online, the state agency cautioned that hearing aids are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug ...
The Better Hearing Institute issued a news release this week warning consumers of the inherent risks associated with purchasing over-the-counter, one-size-fits-all hearing aids instead of consulting a hearing healthcare professional.
BHI supports this claim by stating that hearing loss is sometimes a symptom of a serious underlying medical ...
