Rosana Amaro is an audiology doctoral intern at Island Audiology’s Honolulu clinic, finishing the last year of her Doctor of Audiology degree through the University of the Pacific, San Francisco. Rosana is passionate about patient-centered care and serving as an advocate for children, adults, and families with hearing loss. She was inspired to enter the field of audiology due to growing up with hearing loss since early childhood, and her personal experience with hearing aids. In her free time, Rosana enjoys reading, trying new foods, and spending time with family.
“Audiology is more than just about hearing aids — it is about being an advocate for yourself or others with hearing loss, and providing equal access to communication.”
