Speaking and Coaching

Speaking and Coaching at the HLAA National ConventionDr. Jessen has a huge passion for educating and inspiring audiences through speaking and coaching.  Her practical strategies and fun presentation style have made her a highly sought-after speaker around the United States and internationally.  Speaking topics include:

Successful Communication Strategies – Communication is the foundation for all human relationships and breakdowns in communication can have detrimental effects in all aspects of our lives.  As an expert in communication disorders, Dr. Jessen provides a unique perspective and teaches tangible tools from her book, 5 Keys to Communication Success.  This content is applicable for anyone looking to improve their communication skills in the home, in the workplace, and everywhere in between.

Auditory Rehabilitation & Motivational Interviewing – As the hearing care profession is dominated more and more by technology, the need for professional, patient-centered care becomes increasingly critical to the success of our patients and our practices.  Dr. Jessen’s passion for Auditory Rehabilitation led her to create the 5 Keys to Communication Success AR program and publish articles in numerous professional journals.  She provides guest lectures on the topic for several Audiology doctoral programs and trains her colleagues at state, national, and international conferences each year.

The Journey of Change – Making a significant change in life can be one of the most difficult challenges we face.  Through her own journeys as a mother, business owner, entrepreneur, author and former body builder, Dr. Jessen has learned what it takes to navigate the murky waters of change.  She provides a simple yet highly effective framework for making big changes in any area of your life.

“Dusty’s presentation made me look outside of the box on how I can embrace change and the unknown. There are fears in our life that can prevent us from moving in positive directions. I loved how she just embraced something that was scary and how she applied it to other parts of her life. I was really humbled at how vulnerable and powerful she was through and after this process.”       -Judy Huch, AuD, Oro Valley Audiology
“I was so impressed with Dusty’s presentation at the Entheos meeting.  She took a really tough personal situation and re-channeled her energy towards something beautiful and positive.  Dusty is a uniquely innovative and creative person, a beacon of light in our profession.  We are imperfect human beings and on this beautiful journey of life, we are given many opportunities to learn and grow.  It is in some of the moments of the greatest challenges in life that we experience the greatest growth.  Dusty showed so much courage and vulnerability by sharing her story.   I am inspired by her example.”       -Kamal Elliot, AuD, A & E Audiology
