About Olivia Kozody
Olivia Kozody is from Rochester, NY, and received her bachelor’s in Speech and Hearing from the University at Buffalo. She is currently in the University’s Audiology program and will be graduating in May 2022.
Olivia plans on focusing her studies and career on tinnitus as well as implantable devices, such as cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing devices. She hopes to be able to someday mentor aspiring audiologists, as her mentors have played a huge role in shaping her future.
She chose audiology because she liked the problem-solving and technical aspects of the field, while also enjoying the reward of helping people hear better. She has found that the field goes a lot further than simply helping people hear well again – it positively impacts the patient’s overall quality of life.
Olivia spent four years of her undergraduate/graduate career researching at UB’s Center for Hearing and Deafness. During her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, and traveling.
