Denise E. Stewart, M.S., CCC-A

Denise E. Stewart is a Pennsylvania licensed audiologist in practice for 32 years.  She received her Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders from Pennsylvania State University and her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Secondary Education from West Chester University.  Denise is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Special areas of interest include aural rehabilitation and tinnitus management, hearing aid dispensing, and balance assessment. Denise has worked as an audiologist in private practice, hospital and rehabilitation settings during her career. She has been a staff audiologist at Riddle Hospital for the past 16 years.

Denise’s advice to her patients is to “Take charge of better hearing today”. So many people who have hearing loss wait 10 to 20 years to even have their hearing evaluated. Get a baseline hearing evaluation even if you don’t have any noticeable hearing problems. You will learn about your auditory function and also how to protect your hearing in a noisy world. If a hearing loss is diagnosed, listen to your audiologist and take the recommended steps to better hearing.

Lisa Mackenzie

Lisa Mackenzie has been an audiologist for the past 27 years.  She received a Bachelor’s degree in  Speech and Audiology and a Master’s degree in Audiology from Ithaca College in Ithaca NY.  After completing her education in upstate New York,  she returned to Delaware County to pursue a career in Audiology.

Her  work experience has included diagnostic hearing and balance testing, aural rehabilitation, newborn hearing screenings, occupational testing and hearing aid fittings.   Lisa is certified by the American Speech Language Hearing  Association and is licensed in the State of Pennsylvania.  For the past 20 years she has been a clinical Audiologist at Riddle Hospital in Media, PA.

Lisa has enjoyed helping the many patients that she has met over the years.  It is especially rewarding for her to witness patients  improve the quality of their lives when they pursue amplification via hearing aids or assistive listening devices.  Equally important are the patients who benefit from medical or surgical intervention and referrals.  Lisa finds her work interesting because she recognizes that every patient has a unique set of traits, symptoms and concerns.

Outside of work, Lisa enjoys spending time with her family.  She has been married for 24 years and has three children.  She and her family reside in Glen Mills.

Jessica M. Bell, Au.D

Jessica M. Bell, Au.D., Doctor of Audiology, is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree and of Towson University where she received her Doctor of Audiology degree.  Dr. Bell decided to pursue a career in Audiology following many “job shadowing” opportunities in a local hospital, thanks to her mother.  It was at her mother’s persistence that a good mix of medical setting and the opportunity to show off her interpersonal skills was just the right fit for her!  And don’t tell her… but mom was right!

Dr. Bell has been practicing audiology for five years.  She spent three of the years working for a leading hearing aid manufacturer training audiologists on new hearing aid technology at different VA and active duty locations covering 13 northeastern states.  Recently, Dr. Bell has settled into working at Riddle Hospital providing diagnostic testing, and creating hearing treatment plans to suit her patient’s individual needs.  Dr. Bell truly loves going to work every day knowing that she gets to help someone hear better!

In her spare time, Dr. Bell enjoys running marathons, reading and playing with her puppy, Braxton!

Shannon_Adelson_jas16To Our Photographer

This issue our People in Profile were photographed by Shannon Adelson of Adelson Media, Inc. We had a wonderful time working with Shannon, and since this is our first time working with Shannon we have provided a little about who Shannon is:

Shannon Adelson has been doing photography since he was a kid and has always been involved with the arts. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. He has been shooting semi-professionally since 2005 but didn’t officially open his own business (Adelson Media, Inc.) until 2008. In addition to photography he has a background managing marketing and social media for an online retailer. When an opportunity to shoot music events presented itself, he decided to follow his passion and to go full time with Adelson Media, Inc.

Once he made the decision to pursue professional photography full-time, he enhanced his arsenal by joining the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Shannon said that the process of taking pictures has always been fun; but recently he discovered the joy and wonder of making portraits. Using creative compositional elements like light, color, framing, gesture, expression, and depth of field, every image can tell its own story.

Thanks Shannon for a great job!
