Debbie Baerlocher Alumni Spotlight

Debbie Baerlocher ’96, helps newborn babies hear for the first time. Debbie has always had a passion for helping people. During her years at Elmira College, she discovered audiology and her passion met her life’s work. 

In choosing her major in speech and hearing, Debbie inherently knew she wanted to make a difference and help people, especially children. In exploring possible career paths while at EC, she first considered work in education, but decided a classroom full of students was a bit overwhelming. Then, she considered speech language pathology, which she enjoyed but was discouraged about the length of time patients needed to show even a little progress.
