Meet Dr. Aubrey Marley
As audiologists, we don’t just care about your hearing. We care about how well you live your life! The people we love, our passions, and the things that bring us joy are what matter most, and a life with treated hearing loss makes all the difference.
Meet Dr. Aubrey Marley. As a Doctor of Audiology, she has been a valuable asset to our team since May of 2016. She brings a passion for seeing hearing loss treated, something we value most at Associates in Hearing.
Next time you’re in the office for an appointment, introduce yourself to Dr. Marley! We asked her 12 questions so you can get to know her:
- What is one of your favorite memories from your childhood?
Any of our big family Christmas parties are great memories for me. Every year, we have tons of food and sing 12 Days of Christmas.
- If you could have dinner with any person, alive or dead, who would it be?
My maternal grandparents, who passed away before I was born. During the Great Depression, they immigrated to America from Ireland. I would love to hear their stories firsthand and learn what it was like to settle into an unfamiliar country.
- What is your favorite food or meal to eat?
Cadbury Mini Eggs
- Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, patient, and determined.
- Have you ever done something that not many people have done? If so, what?
I was an Irish Dancer from elementary school up until high school. I tried to pick it back up by joining an Irish dancing club in college, but I realized my efforts were better spent focusing on my speech language and hearing degree.
- Where did you go to college?
- What made you decide to become a doctor of audiology?
My older brother has hearing loss, and when I was young, I would tag along with him to his audiology appointments at Associates in Hearing. I always knew I wanted to help people, and after attending some of his appointments, I thought audiology would be the perfect fit. I never expected to end up at the very place that introduced me to audiology, but here I am!
- What is your favorite part about working at Associates in Hearing?
I’m working in the same community that I grew up in, so I often feel I have a lot in common with my patients and can really relate to them.
- What do you enjoy most about being an audiologist?
I love helping patients communicate better with their friends and families and watching them become more social because they can hear again. I also love seeing my patients light up when they realize they are hearing things they haven’t heard in years.
- Why is hearing important?
I believe staying engaged and communicating with our friends and family is so important when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle and maintaining relationships. Without hearing, it can be difficult to participate in conversation and can often lead to social isolation.
- Outside of audiology, what are you passionate about?
Reading. I always have a book with me to read during my lunch breaks.
- When you’re 75 and able to look back on your life, what do you hope to have accomplished?
When I graduated high school I told myself I just wanted to make sure I helped others in some way. I hope to stay true to that goal and somehow make a positive difference in the lives around me.
