Raised in Bryan, Texas, Jana completed her undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University before attending the University of North Texas with an ambition to earn her master’s degree in speech pathology.
However, a required audiology class soon set her on a new career path. She became enthralled with the subject and says audiology resonated with her because it involved everything she enjoys – helping people to improve their lives and relationships with others and using technology to make positive impacts. Following this revelation, Jana went on to graduate with her Doctor of Audiology degree.
After many years of assisting patients in the clinic on a daily basis, Jana’s main responsibilities at Allison Audiology have shifted to a management role. She now works behind the scenes focusing on administrative, management, and marketing responsibilities.
Reflecting on her career, she says she loves the positive impact audiology has on a person’s life. She explains, “It allows a person to hear sounds they wouldn’t normally hear due to hearing loss or other auditory conditions.” Jana notes that although she no longer works hands-on with patients on a daily basis, her current responsibilities are aimed at improving the lives of everyone who visits the office.
Outside of work, Jana loves spending time with her family, two dogs, and in the kitchen. She also enjoys weekend getaways and catching up with her extended family. She points out that although she isn’t really a Galveston beach person, she loves spending time in the salty air and enjoying the coastal life.
