Hello Little Listeners Families! As you may have noticed, there are some new faces and some familiar ones here at Little Listeners. We wanted to give you the opportunity to learn a little bit about each of our awesome interns and our newest Audiology Assistant.
Meet our new Audiology Assistant, Lindsey Wilson! Lindsey recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education in Communication Sciences and Disorders. She is still deciding whether she wants to pursue a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology or a Doctorate in Audiology. Her interests are working with clients of all ages, especially friends with communication needs. She has an extreme passion for helping children. Lindsey cannot wait to see what the future holds and is looking forward to working with the wonderful people at Little Listeners. Welcome our new “Megan,” Lindsey Wilson!
One of our new interns is a former Little Listener herself. Bret was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder at the age of eighteen, so she understands what most of the kids are going through. She graduated from Oak Mountain Academy in 2017, and she recently completed her first year at the University of West Alabama as a student and volleyball athlete. Her intended major is Elementary Education with the hopes of teaching the 4th grade. Bret has always loved children, and her goal is to help them become better at life while giving back to the community. Bret cannot wait to see what this summer holds for her and the kids at Little Listeners. Welcome Bret Luther!
Let us welcome back a former intern, Emma Phillips. Emma enjoyed our awesome staff and her time here last summer so much she decided to join us again for another exciting summer. Emma graduated from Blessed Trinity Catholic High School in 2017. She will be a sophomore in the fall at the University of Kentucky where she is studying Communication Sciences and Disorders. She is interested in both Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. As she continues to gain experience in both fields this summer, she will be volunteering at another remarkable organization, Jacobs Ladder Center. We are so excited to have her back this summer!
Nathan has been working at Little Listeners for a year now and looks forward to his remaining time here with all of our great clients and staff. Nathan Martin-Obst recently graduated from high school and will be attending the University of Georgia in the fall. Nathan’s passion for the medical field as a whole is demonstrated by his enthusiasm for Prosthetics, Bio printing, and Audiology. Nathan is grateful for the opportunity to continue his internship and to be a part of the team here at Little Listeners.
Last, but not least, an intern who has been a part of the family for about a year and a half. Lauren recently graduated from Alpharetta High School. She will be attending Clemson University this fall. Lauren plans to major in business with a concentration either in finance or accounting. She has loved being able to work with our above and beyond stuff, and she looks forwards to learning even more this summer while helping with all the fun summer activities we have planned.
We are clearly very lucky to have all these great people here at Little Listeners. We cannot wait to spend the summer together!
