Dr. Christensen earned his Doctorate of Audiology from A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences in Mesa, Arizona, and both a Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in Audiology and Communication Disorders from Utah State University (USU) in Logan, Utah. He is Board Certified in Audiology by the American Board of Audiology, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (FAAA) and of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (FADA). He received his Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) from the American Speech Language and Hearing Association in 1996.
He is interested in both diagnostic and rehabilitative aspects of Audiology, which include diagnostic hearing evaluations (for all ages from birth to 100+), aural rehabilitation (hearing therapy), hearing aids, vestibular (balance) testing and rehabilitation. Because of his extensive experience and knowledge in the field of Audiology, he has been selected to serve as a beta tester for many innovative Audiological technologies.
Dr. Christensen and his family have lived in Cheyenne since 2001 – longer than he has lived anywhere in his entire life. His father was in the Air Force, so he grew up all over the United States. He met his wife in an undergraduate, abnormal psychology class at USU. She has her Masters degree in Early Childhood Education and teaches preschool in their home. They have five children, four boys and one girl. The Christensen family is very involved in the local community as active members of school, church and community organizations.
In 2008 Dr. Christensen learned that the clinic where he was working was being sold to a European hearing aid manufacturer. After evaluating this situation, he was concerned that he would be unable to serve his patients properly as a locally-focused, independent Audiologist while working for an international corporation. As a result, he found himself needing to create Brant Audiology to be able to continue to properly serve the Audiology needs of the people of Southeast Wyoming. On July 28, 2008 he officially opened Brant Audiology and has never looked back.
Dr. Christensen and his family love being in Wyoming. “Southeast Wyoming is a great place to live, play, work, and raise a family! We are happy to be here and to be part of such a great community.”
