April is the founder of AudBoss, a private Facebook group for private practice owners to inspire, support and learn from one another. April graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Audiology from Illinois State University in 2001 and a Master of Science in Audiology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 2003. She began her Audiology career in Naples, Florida at a busy ENT practice before working for Sonic Innovations as a Regional Training Manager for the Southeastern United States and Puerto Rico. In 2009, she opened her private practice, Decibels Audiology, which she and her husband Mark built to three locations, dozens of employees and hundreds of headaches before gloriously cashing out and selling the practice in 2019. Following her “retirement” from clinical practice, April and her family relocated to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, settling in the tiny town of Craftsbury on a 40 acre farm. When she’s not raising her children, chickens or piglets, she and Mark are boiling maple syrup for Royan Family Farms, LLC.
Amit Gosalia, AuD
His leadership in Audiology began when he joined a licensure committee and quickly learned the struggles of our profession.
Dr. G, as his patients call him, started his hearing career working for a hearing aid dispenser in Phoenix. After realizing there had to be some form of didactic education and theory behind the hearing system, he jumped into Audiology. He received his M.S. from Arizona State University, and 4 years later, his Au.D. from AT Still University, where he subsequently taught the Amplification course on site for the Au.D. students.
His leadership in Audiology began when he joined a licensure committee and quickly learned the struggles of our profession. He became the chair of the Arizona political action committee for audiology, and then ran, and was elected President of the Arizona Speech-Language-Hearing Association in 2006. He joined Audiology Clinic, Inc in Vancouver, WA in 2008, and then purchased it with his wife in 2012. Within 4 years, he and his wife had almost tripled their business, and decided to move back South for more sun! They sold the practice in 2017, and moved to Los Angeles, where Dr. Gosalia joined West Valley Hearing Center.
Dr. Gosalia is board certified by the American Board of Audiology (ABA), and is a member of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA). He served a 3-year term on the Board of Directors for the ABA in 2012-2015 and has served as Chair of the AAA Marketing sub-committee. He has received many awards, including the Audiology Foundation of America’s Professional Leadership Award, the Jack Vernon Crystal Award by the American Tinnitus Association (ATA), the AT Still Alumni Association Distinguished Service Award along with other local awards for working with many non-profits in Vancouver WA. He is passionate leader for audiology and is always looking to help audiologists grow!
