Shu-En A. Lim, AuD, CCC-A earned her bachelor of science in communication sciences and disorders from Northwestern University in 2007. In 2011 she earned her doctor of audiology from Vanderbilt University, where she served as a research assistant at the Dan Maddox Hearing Aid Research Laboratory. In addition, she completed a clinical fellowship at University of California, San Francisco in 2011. She joined the Pacific faculty in 2015.

Dr. Lim joins the Pacific Hearing and Balance Center with previous experience in pediatric and adult diagnostic evaluation and rehabilitation. Her experience encompasses hearing devices, cochlear implants, vestibular assessments, tinnitus counseling and auditory rehabilitation.  

What she loves about teaching at Pacific is the opportunity for faculty to carve out time to coach and mentor their students so they may become leaders in the field of audiology. She has also observed that Pacific faculty collaborate well together and have complementary areas of expertise. It is Dr. Lim's goal to train up the next generation of audiologists who will elevate the profession and make a difference in the lives of their patients. She views it as a privilege to be able to watch students progress in their knowledge and develop their skill set.  

Dr. Lim is a California licensed dispensing audiologist and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, as well as a member of the American Board of Audiology and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. In addition, she serves as Secretary for the California Academy of Audiology.  

What led Dr. Lim to pursue a career in audiology was a combination of the desire to help people and an interest in science, specifically a fascination with biology. After taking a psychoacoustics course she was intrigued by the intricacies of the ear and brain. She also recognized that there was a need for more audiologists. The individual who has influenced her career in a profound way is Dr. Beverly Wright, her professor at Northwestern University who taught the psychoacoustics course, which for Dr. Lim was a gateway into the field of audiology.
