Doctor of Audiology
Born in Athens, GA, Christa Reeves lived most of her childhood in Stone Mountain, GA. She attended the University of Georgia for her undergraduate training in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a concentration in Audiology. Immediately upon graduation, she enrolled in the graduate program at the University of Florida where she received her Master of Arts in Audiology in 1994.
Christa completed her professional training in 1995 (Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology – CCC/A) in Memphis, TN while working for various Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physicians where she saw a variety of ages and medical conditions. In 2004, Christa completed her Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree through the Distance Learning Program at the University of Florida.
Christa began work in Atlanta, GA at Northside Hospital, the largest birthing hospital in the United States, where she gained most of her pediatric training.
In 2001, Northside Hospital transitioned to accommodate new national standards that require every infant born in the United States receive a newborn hearing screening prior to 3 months of age. Christa was a key member of a team of audiologists that developed the standards and protocols for this enormous undertaking. Today, the program remains a model of excellence for the development of comprehensive newborn screening programs.
During her years at Northside Hospital and Dekalb Medical, Christa focused on the entire auditory development system as it progresses through childhood and into adulthood. She became known for her specialty in Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) and is currently among the few audiologists in the metro Atlanta area that have the training and expertise to test and treat for APD. Christa has a unique passion and understanding for the entire auditory development system and has devoted her career to helping children understand and overcome their listening difficulties. Known by most of her patients as “Dr. Christa,” she has a gentle, caring demeanor with young children.
