From a very young age Lindsay understood the profound impact hearing loss can have on a family. Being raised with a deaf older brother, she has been exposed to the isolation, frustration, and challenges deafness can cause. It was through Signed English, one genre of sign language, that her family was able to connect to her brother’s otherwise silent world and navigate all of lifes challenges. This experience and exposure to the obstacles individuals with hearing loss often face, shaped Lindsay as a person and guided her to her passion; providing care to individuals with hearing loss and educating others about hearing/hearing loss. Her unique perspective and drive have allowed her to excel in her career as an audiologist, researcher, educator, and speaker.
