Faculty Focus: Dr. Elizabeth Sedunov

Dr. Sedunov and audiology student DayleDr. Elizabeth Sedunov is a board certified audiologist at PEI. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech and Hearing Science and her Doctor of Audiology degree from The Ohio State University. Her clinical interests include diagnostic hearing evaluation, hearing insurant amplification and verification and aural rehabilitation.

Her personal connection to loved ones with hearing loss ultimately generated her interest in the audiology field.

“I became more aware of my family and friends who had untreated hearing loss – my father specifically,” said Dr. Sedunov. “Once I started graduate school, he was fit with hearing aids and now he’s doing really well.”

Dr. Sedunov says the opportunity to see advancements in hearing technology over the years is one aspect of her job that she finds most interesting.

Drs. Bondurant and Sedunov“I enjoy being able to introduce my patients to new technology,” she said.  “When I started graduate school the technology they had then wasn’t nearly as amazing as the technology now – especially in terms of the features that are available.”

When Dr. Sedunov is not seeing patients or teaching students, she enjoys having brunch with friends, spending time outdoors in beautiful weather and completing DIY projects.

“My father is very good at DIY projects - I’m more of his assistant. Together, we’ve fixed several rooms, renovated a bathroom and built a patio,” she said.
 
Dr. Sedunov also enjoys spending time with her family and her dog.
