Colette Vossler-Welch, Au.D.
Dr. Colette Vossler-Welch is a licensed and certified Doctor of Audiology who graduated from the Graduate Center, a part of the City Universities of New York. She is bi-lingual, with American Sign-Language as her second language. Her audiology background includes balance testing, tinnitus treatment, pediatric testing, aural rehabilitation and advanced hearing instruments. Being an individual with hearing loss herself who also wears a hearing aid due to profound hearing loss makes her exceptionally passionate about helping others hear their best. In fact, breaking her own device nearly 10 years ago landed her a job working as an audiology assistant in Corvallis, OR that started her journey to become an audiologist.
Dr. Vossler-Welch grew up in Coos Bay, OR. She moved to Eugene last summer (2020) with her husband, Colin and son Fenix. She enjoys camping but not during the winter like her husband! She also enjoys walking, hiking, snowboarding and most outdoor activities.
