Whitney N. Jacks
AuD, CCC-A, F-AAA
Whitney comes from Birmingham, AL to join the Great Lakes Bay Hearing team. She is licensed by the state of Michigan and holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. Whitney is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and a recent member of the Michigan Audiology Coalition.
Whitney earned her Doctor of Audiology from Samford University and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Science Disorders from Auburn University Montgomery. Her clinical experiences range from private practice to the hospital/ENT setting. She completed her Clinical Fellowship with Children’s Hospital of Detroit, followed by an extended clinical rotation with Valleydale Hearing and Balance in Birmingham, AL. Whitney provides comprehensive diagnostic audiological evaluations and treatment for all ages, with a special interest and experience in implantable hearing devices. Prior to receiving her AuD, Whitney was a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant with the Alabama public school system for five years where she worked with a wide range of ages and developmental needs.
Whitney believes in providing whole-person, patient-centered hearing healthcare. Whitney’s passion and inspiration to pursue a career in audiology has been longstanding since she was in the 6th grade. As the sibling of a bilateral cochlear implant user, she understands, first hand, the challenges those with hearing loss face on a daily basis. The personal journey with her brother’s profound, congenital hearing loss fuels her desire to bring awareness to early identification of hearing loss in order to provide perspective in how hearing loss is treated and understood. She is excited to join Great Lakes Bay Hearing where she can bring her clinical skills, expertise and passion to serve the greater Midland, MI area.
During her free-time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, cycling, playing tennis and is always in search of the best coffee and cinnamon rolls.
