Kacy Creswell, Doctor of Audiology
We’re excited to announce Kacy Creswell to our team of Audiology Professionals! Kacy received her Doctorate in Audiology from Utah State University in 2019 after completing her residency at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California.
Kacy is proficient in performing hearing tests, balance tests, and advanced electrophysiological testing on patients of all ages. When asked why she was so passionate about Audiology, Kacy responded, “So often people don’t realize how a hearing loss can have such a significant impact on their social life, and in turn, their quality of life. I love the field of audiology because it allows me to help patients stay engaged with their loved ones and other important aspects of their life.”
During the 2018 American Auditory Society Conference, Kacy presented her research on the Band Importance Functions for Male and Female Speech. She concluded female talkers, on average, have more weight in the higher frequencies when compared to male talkers. Clinically, this is important to keep in mind when counseling patients about the impacts of hearing impairment and for optimizing audibility of speech when using amplification.
When Kacy is not hard at work helping patients with their hearing health, she is enjoying her new Colorado landscape with her husband. Backpacking, climbing, camping (sun or snow), and wood-burning are a few of her favorite activities!
