The American Board of Audiology® (ABA) today announced that Danyelle Hayes, AuD, of Sumter, SC; Shekina Martin, AuD, of Camden, DE; and Jason Wigand, AuD, of Columbia, SC; are now Board Certified in Audiology®.

The ABA identifies and formally recognizes audiologists whose knowledge base is consistent with the highest professionally established credentials and distinguishes them as Board Certified in Audiology. By becoming ABA certified, Drs. Hayes, Martin, and Wigand show they are willing to achieve and maintain the highest professional standards while remaining current in the latest audiology developments and issues.
The Board Certified in Audiology credential is administered by the ABA for the express purpose of certifying audiologists and helps consumers recognize those individuals who have completed standardized education and training and are committed to continuing their professional development.
John A. Coverstone, AuD, Board Certified in Audiology and Chair of the Board of Governors for the ABA, notes, “Achieving ABA Board Certified in Audiology certification is a tangible way for audiologists to demonstrate commitment and dedication to the field and to excellence in audiology,” said Dr. Coverstone. “By taking this voluntary step, these audiologists are demonstrating to their patients and colleagues that they care deeply about their profession and want to stay current in best practices.”
The ABA has been granting certification to audiologists since 1999. Board Certified in Audiology is a voluntary certification program administered by audiologists for audiologists through the ABA. Benefits accrue to both the audiologist and the consumer through recognition of the commitment to continued education in the field of audiology.
