The Speech and Hearing Center, Chattanooga’s only non-profit speech and hearing organization, has named Kristin Vrieswyk, AU.D., CCC-A as director of audiology.
Dr. Vrieswyk oversees The Speech and Hearing Center’s clinical audiology department, which serves children and adults; the early identification program, which offers free screenings to children five and under; and the Industrial Services Department, which manages hearing conservation programs for companies who are required by OSHA to maintain one.
Dr. Vrieswyk earned her Doctor of Audiology degree from Arizona School of Health Sciences in 2009. She is licensed to practice Audiology in both Georgia and Tennessee, and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association. She is also a member of the Tennessee Association of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists.
“Dr. Vrieswyk has extensive training and skills to evaluate the hearing of adults, infants, and children of all ages” said Connie Fernández, president and CEO. “We are thrilled to have her on our team, and know that the community we serve will be as delighted as we are.”
In addition to her work on location, Dr. Vrieswyk oversees the Newborn Hearing Screening Program at Parkridge East, an extension of The Speech and Hearing Center’s services.
