Washington State Academy of Audiology


The Washington State Academy of Audiology is a statewide non-profit organization for audiologists from all specialty areas and backgrounds. Our objective is to educate, mentor, and network audiologists within the state of Washington. WSAA invites you to join for the first time, or renew membership, in your State Audiology organization.

Joining WSAA is a great way to network with other audiologists through annual meetings, sponsored events, email and newsletter updates. We offer opportunities for leadership positions on the board, volunteer committee positions, and the chance to make your voice heard by becoming involved in your Audiology organization.

Satara Setzer, Au.D., Secretary
I'm Satara Setzer, a newly graduated audiologist from Pacific University in Oregon who is working at a private practice in Seattle focusing on tinnitus, balance, and diagnostic hearing assessments. I am excited to be on the board for WSAA to help connect me and to give back to the local Washington audiologist community. In my spare time I enjoy collecting new vinyl records, trying new recipes and watching soccer.
