The American Board of Audiology® (ABA) today announced that Gloria Buckley, AuD, of Dallas, TX; Danielle Doyle, AuD, of Winston-Salem, NC; Kimberly Smith Keessen, AuD, of Muskegon, MI; and Stacy O’Brien, AuD, of Daytona Beach, FL; are now Board Certified in Audiology®. By obtaining this nationally-recognized credential, Drs. Buckley, Doyle, Keessen, and O’Brien demonstrate their commitment to professional excellence 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. Buckley, Doyle, Keessen, and O’Brien also 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 Board Certified in Audiology is a way for audiologists to demonstrate true commitment and dedication to the field and to excellence in audiology,” said Dr. Coverstone, “and will allow Drs. Buckley, Doyle, Keessen, and O’Brien to demonstrate to both patients and colleagues that they care deeply about their profession and want to stay current in best practices in audiology.”
The ABA has been granting credentials to audiologists since 1999. Board Certified in Audiology is a voluntary 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.
