About Jenna Hendler

Resident

Jenna Hendler is a native of Clarence, NY, and graduated from the University at Buffalo with a degree in Hearing Science from the Communicative Disorders and Sciences Department.  She also minored in counseling.  She will be graduating with her Doctorate in Audiology in May 2021 from the same University.

Jenna chose audiology because of the profound impact it has on a patient’s quality of life and interpersonal relationships. Her graduate capstone project focused on examining the effects of a sound therapy device for tinnitus patients over a nine-month period. In addition to this, Jenna spent two weeks in London, England observing and learning about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a form of audiologist-delivered treatment for tinnitus and hyperacusis patients in a hospital-based setting.  She looks forward to continuing her education and refining my clinical skills to best support the needs of my patients.

Jenna has been very active in her graduate program and working alongside her clinical peers to educate and increase public awareness about hearing loss and prevention.  She was formerly the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Buffalo Chapter of the Student Academy of Audiology at the University at Buffalo, where she worked with fellow E-Board leaders o organize and manage various volunteer opportunities.

While at HES, she hopes to gain more experience working with cochlear implants and to continue performing diagnostic vestibular evaluations.

Outside of HES, Jenna enjoys taking her dog Rocky for a walk, spending time with her husband, kayaking, and reading books.
