ASHA AUDIOLOGY-THANK YOU, AUDIOLOGY HEROES!
ASHA Audiology - Thank You, Audiology Heroes!
A Message From the Director of Audiology Practices
Audiology Practices Team (l-r): Regina Zappi; Bria Collins; Donna Smiley; Marquitta Merkison; Tricia Ashby-Scabis;
Maureen Salamat; Lindsay Creed
As we have moved into another
year of dealing with the COVID-19
pandemic, I'd like to start off this
welcome to Audiology Connections
with a big thanks to all of you. These
past 2 years have been like nothing
we have experienced. The audiology
profession has risen to the challenge,
and I am proud of my clinical peers for
the services that they have continued
to provide in challenging times.
Welcome to the 2022 issue
of Audiology Connections. This
publication will ideally catch you up
on some of the work ASHA is doing
for the profession-and fill you in about
some of the folks who are working on
your behalf. ASHA's audiology staff
are working hard for the 14,000+
audiologists affiliated with the
Association. Audiology at ASHA has
been growing. ASHA currently employs
nine audiologists, who work throughout
the Association to add the audiology
" spice " to the mix of educational
offerings, advocacy, and resources
that ASHA provides. With more than
223,000 members, ASHA has the
resources, experience, and reach to
support and promote the audiology
profession.
The Audiology Practices team
continues to seek your input for future
value-based benefits for audiologists.
In 2021, we created audiology-focused
Member Advisory Groups (MAGs)
to gain member input regarding the
work we are doing on your behalf.
We are starting a new mentoring
program that will initially target
audiology students, and we have
restructured the Audiology Early
Career Professionals (ECPs) program
into a year-long program based upon
prior participants' feedback. We would
value hearing from you about resource
needs, programmatic interests, or other
professional interests, so please reach
out to audiology@asha.org.
ASHA's Audiology Practices team
has grown in 2022. Paul Farrell, AuD,
left ASHA to pursue a new audiology
opportunity, and Deb Berndtson, AuD,
retired. In addition, the team added
a new part-time audiology position.
Currently, the Audiology Practices
team includes ASHA-certified staff
audiologists Regina Zappi, AuD;
Lindsay Creed, AuD; Bria Collins,
AuD; and Marquitta Merkison, AuD.
Maureen Salamat is project manager
for the team. Additional audiologists
at ASHA include Donna Smiley,
PhD, Chief Staff Officer, Audiology;
Julie Ambrose, AuD, National
Center for Evidence-Based Practice;
Karen Beverly-Ducker, MS, Office of
Multicultural Affairs; and myself.
I recently celebrated my 4-year work
anniversary at ASHA. People have
asked me why I chose to leave clinical
practice and work at ASHA. Recently,
the Audiology Practices team has
been discussing the choice that we, as
audiologists, made.
