Dawn Ashe has worked in different positions within the hearing healthcare field for the past 9 years, including as an audiology assistant, an audiometric technician, and finally as a registered clinical audiologist. She was awarded a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in biology, concentrating in genetics, from Dalhousie University, and a Doctorate of Audiology (Au.D.) from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where she did capstone research on noise exposure, hearing conservation, and noise-induced hearing loss in police officers. Throughout her clinical career, she has gained experience in hospital and clinic settings, specifically in audiological diagnostics in pediatric to geriatric populations, including VNG, ABR, CAPD testing, as well as aural rehabilitation, but her expertise remains in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing disorders, specializing in noise-induced hearing loss and presbycusis (age-related hearing loss). She works with interdisciplinary teams with other professionals, including ENTs (Ear, Nose, and Throat surgeons), GPs (General Practitioners/Family Doctors), and SLPs (Speech-Language Pathologists). Her approach to treating patients is treating the individual and their families with compassion and respect, using the most up-to-date, evidence-based practices. She is a registered member of ACSLPA (Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists), an international fellow of AAA (American Academy of Audiology), and a member of CAA (Canadian Academy of Audiology). On the rare occasion that she has spare time, she enjoys research, volunteering, reading, learning new languages and new instruments, and keeping active with intramural sports.
