Dr. Caroline Aland, Au.D, a former Girl Scout leader and Sunday school teacher at Christ Church, Kent Island, has been a resident of Kent Island and private practitioner with Chesapeake Hearing Centers since 1986. Dr. Aland received her bachelor’s degree from East Tennessee University in communicative disorders, her master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in audiology, and her Doctor of Audiology degree from the University of Florida.
She enjoys her work and believes helping people is what makes her job enjoyable. “I found a calling to audiology back when I was working with children while going to college at East Tennessee State,” she says. “That satisfaction of helping someone communicate still drives me to this day.” Her professional experience includes clinical work at Womack Army Hospital, the Durham V.A. Hospital, and the ENT Clinic at UNC Hospital. Caroline was appointed by the governor of Maryland to the State Board of Audiologists, Hearing Aid Dispensers, and Speech-Language Pathologists for two consecutive terms, serving one year as chair.
Dr. Aland sees patients in many of our locations. Her compassionate approach, professionalism, and special expertise in counseling and fitting computer-programmable hearing instruments are valuable assets to our practice, our patients, and the community.
