Introducing Your Friendly Local Team

Ashley B. Thom, AuD

Doctor of Audiology

Dr. Ashley B. Thom

Dr. Ashley B. Thom, AuD-F-AAA, grew up in Abbeville, Louisiana. As a junior at LSU in a Speech Pathology class, she realized a love for speech, language, and hearing, as it relates to our sense of self. After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Communications Disorders, that love persisted, and Dr. Thom graduated in 2011 with a Clinical Doctorate in Audiology from Louisiana Tech University.

Since joining Selective Hearing in 2011, Dr. Thom continues to make sounds and language more accessible to the hearing impaired and takes pleasure in learning about each patient’s unique hearing and communication needs.

When not in the office, Dr. Thom spends active family time with her husband and local nieces and nephews. She is a member of the Junior League of Lafayette where she regularly volunteers with a focus on making a better community for women and children.

Dr. Thom is an active member of the Louisiana Academy of Audiology, and has been serving as a board member for two years, and was the 2016-17 President of LAA.

“My quality of life has improved 100%”

“Acknowledging hearing issues is often the first step in solving the concern.  Fortunately, Selective Hearing has taken care of me for over 10 years.  During this time everyone, from receptionists to audiologists, has provided the highest level of knowledge, care and concern.  My quality of life has improved 100%.  Being able to converse, watch TV, attend concerts (or any other venues) and being able to hear and COMPREHEND is never taken for granted.  Dr. Thom and her associates have continued to provide timely remedies to any issues I present.  From instruments to my hearing loss, they continue to give me their time and expertise.  I whole heartedly recommend them for any and all hearing concerns”
