Lisa Illich, M.C.S.D.
Lisa joined the University of Washington Speech and Hearing Sciences faculty in the spring of 2006. Her contributions include didactic instruction and clinical supervision.
Lisa received her master's degree from the University of Montana and moved to Seattle in 1990 for an externship at the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Following her externship she provided diagnostic and hearing aid dispensing services at Northwest Hospital and Virginia Mason Medical Center. As she gained clinical experience in those settings she became passionate about providing AR. Her position at the UW provides the opportunity to share this passion with students and colleagues. Lisa teaches an advanced AR course to first-year AuD students, co-teaches a counseling course for third-year AuD students, and supervises both speech pathology and audiology graduate students in the clinical setting. Whether entering the field of speech pathology or audiology, Lisa's message to all students is to" LISTEN to how the communication disorder is impacting the life of the person sitting across from you, then provide support and guidance as you help them achieve their communication goals."
Lisa is licensed to practice in the state of Washington. She is a fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), and the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology (ARA). Starting in September of 2016 she began serving a three-year term as a member of the Washington State Board of Hearing and Speech. She is also the Clinical Director for Special Olympics Washington (SOWA).
