Angela has spent the past fifteen years specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of Auditory Processing Disorder, a hearing difficulty that has less to do with the ears and more to do with the brain.

Her podcast, Between Two Ears has recently launched discussing and demonstrating listening and hearing disorders in ways you may have not previously considered.

Talking Points

Experiencing Auditory Processing Disorder

Everyone knows someone who has a hard time listening. Auditory processing is what the brain does with what the ears hear. When there is a problem in this process, it is called an auditory processing disorder. While 6% of the general population may struggle with this, historically underrepresented populations may be even more affected. Angela will demonstrate how we test and treat this disorder and how, by changing ears, we can change lives.

You Are So Good; Finding Joy in Dark Times

A key theme of Angela's TEDx talk was the statement, "You are so Good." Her foster mother said this sentence hundreds of times each day to restore Angela's faith in herself after the traumatic childhood abuse of being locked in her Dad and step-mother's basement for a large part of three years. In this talk, Angela will demonstrate a few ideas and techniques to help every family member feel loved, valued, and hopeful about the future and some practices she used to find joy in isolation. (A skill that has suddenly become relevant.)

The Future of Healthcare

As an audiologist, Angela has had a ringside seat to see how disruption can occur when a profession stakes its value and worth on the widgets that are sold instead of harnessing the mind's creative and problem-solving powers. Humans are clever, and we can always add value when we find a tricky problem to solve. The Future of Healthcare is often imagined in high-tech, but those with low-tech skills will be irreplaceable.
