Dr. Laura Schauer joined Nola Aronson's Advanced Audiology team in 2020. She was born in San Diego, California, but moved to Colorado at a young age. She grew up in Colorado, attending Colorado State University for her undergraduate degree and then receiving her Doctorate of Audiology from the University of Northern Colorado.
She has a great passion to help those with hearing loss, having experienced a progressive hearing loss herself. This is what motivated her to pursue a career in audiology - to make a difference for those with hearing loss, as her own audiologists have done for her. She has personal experience with hearing aids, BICROS hearing systems, communication strategies, home alerting systems, and cochlear implants.
Dr. Schauer has been featured in the Hands and Voices blog, won the Graduate Dean's Citation for Excellence Award in graduate school, and was asked to be the student speaker at her doctorate graduation. She also designed the "Laura Listening Tube", a custom device that allows audiologists with hearing loss to more easily diagnose any problems with a patient's hearing aids.
