"I found audiology as an undergraduate speech-language pathology major at St. John’s University in NY. I found working with the different test equipment was more fitting to my learning style. Learning different test techniques with all the age groups as well as setting up rehabilitation plans was a truly exceptional challenge! I've never regretted my decision to choose Audiology! I also have to thank the US Navy for helping me, too!"

"Salus/PCO is a great program that focused heavily on ocular disease, in a great area of the country - I mean who doesn't love an authentic Philly Cheesesteak!"

"Dr. Lorraine Lombardi scared me and amazed me at the same time. On the first day of class, she started speaking and I thought to myself, that I’d never learned all she had to teach. By the end of class, she quite expertly weaved everything together to create a beautiful story. I am still in awe of her teaching ability."
