Dr. Ashley B. Thom
Dr. Ashley B. Thom, AuD-F-AAA, CCC-A, 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 serving as a board member for two years, and was the 2016-17 President of LAA.
Kegan Courville was born and raised in Lafayette and attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Since joining the Selective Hearing family as our Practice Administrator in April 2017, she has used her extensive background in customer service and hospitality management to provide our patients with the best care and service possible.
When not in the office greeting and helping our patients, she enjoys spending time with her two beautiful daughters, reading, experimenting in the kitchen and supporting her guitarist husband in Acadiana’s local music scene.
She makes sure to promote the benefits of hearing protection and healthy hearing!
“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.
