Each year, Gardner Audiology takes on a few Doctor of Audiology externs. What does this mean? An audiology extern is a student in the last year of their doctoral program, who has completed all required coursework. The only requirement left to fulfill is clinical hours. When Gardner Audiology takes on externs, they are helping students in that last step to becoming an independent hearing doctor.
Casey Curran is one of this year’s Gardner Audiology externs. She is attending the University of South Florida’s Audiology doctoral program. She was born and raised in Massachusetts. Be ready to hear her leave an “r” out of some words. Massachusetts will always be her home, but Florida has been her current home for the past 3 years.
How she got into Audiology is a little bit of a long story, so I’ll try to share a condensed version. Her younger brother has special needs, and she would often help him with activities that most people wouldn’t need to think twice about. She really enjoyed helping him (still does), and knew that she wanted to make a career out of helping others. When she found Audiology, it was perfect. The ability to hear is something that a lot of us take for granted. Being able to give that back to people makes her excited to go into work every day. We all deserve a good quality of life, and being able to hear can be a big part of that.
She primarily works in the Gardner Audiology’s southern offices in Tampa Bay – South Pasadena, Palm Harbor, and Citrus Park., Florid. Hopefully you’ll see her in one of those offices soon!
