I am currently a first year graduate student in the doctorate of audiology program offered at James Madison University.  I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia called West Chester, Pennsylvania.  Although West Chester is home to West Chester University, I decided I wanted to get further away from home and thus applied to Penn State University main campus.  I entered Penn State with an undecided major, but quickly decided I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become an audiologist.  After applying to numerous graduate programs, I set my sights on James Madison University.  Although it was only my first visit, upon leaving my interview for the audiology program, I knew James Madison was the perfect place for me.
