As a fourth-year resident student, New York native Amanda Rodriguez already has a wealth of experience under her belt — from telehealth aural rehabilitation and internships in private practice to tenure as a graduate assistant for two different departments at Towson University’s College of Health Professions. She earned a Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh in 2018 and is set to graduate from Towson with a Doctor of Audiology degree in May 2022.
Amanda discovered her passion for audiology as an undergrad. After an inspiring conversation with a professor and a rotation as an undergraduate clinician in her school’s audiology clinic, Amanda switched her path from speech-language pathologist to audiologist and has loved it ever since. Working with people from all walks of life, Amanda especially enjoys group aural rehabilitation and the opportunity it provides to educate patients and create a space for them to connect.
What does Amanda appreciate most about being part of our team? “Everyone here is knowledgeable and is involved in areas outside of direct patient care,” says Amanda. “Audiologists here are involved in marketing, teaching, and state and national organizations. There are also many services offered here that other practices may not have under their roof. Not only is this a wonderful place for patients but also students who are eager to learn about the various aspects of audiology.”
