Faculty Biographies

A.U. Bankaitis, PhD is a clinical Audiologist & Vice President of Oaktree Products, Inc., a multi-line distributor hearing healthcare products. As a doctoral candidate, her funded research documented the effects of varying degrees of HIV on the auditory system. Dr. Bankaitis successfully applied these research insights into clinical practice, becoming the leading authority on infection control and authoring many publications on the topic including the popular textbook Infection Control in the Audiology Clinic

Anne E Hogan, MS, PhD, CCC-A, F-AAA has been a licensed Audiologist since completing her CFY in 2003.  After working clinically for six years in North Carolina, she moved on to James Madison University to pursue her PhD in Communication Sciences and Disorders, with an emphasis on Vestibular Assessment and Rehabilitation.  While the entire field of Audiology is exciting, she chose to focus on the Vestibular patients because she “would rather be deaf than dizzy.”
Trent Westrick, AuD, is an audiologist and Assistant Professor in the School of Audiology at Pacific University.  His clinical interests include adult diagnostics, amplification, cerumen management, and psychosocial aspects of hearing impairment.  Dr. Westrick received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Disorders from University of Minnesota and a Doctor of Audiology degree from The Ohio State University.
