Our Audiologist, Dr. Dusty Jessen, has been practicing audiology since 2001. She was drawn to the field of communication disorders after years of observing and interacting with several family members who had speech and hearing challenges. She has experienced, first-hand, the stress and frustration that accompanies communication breakdowns related to hearing loss. As an audiologist, she enjoys helping people with hearing loss explore the various treatment options in an effort to help them understand and overcome the challenges presented by this silent disability.
