For nearly 40 years, Judith A. Marlowe has excelled as an expert in audiology. Prior to the start of her illustrious career, she attended Thomas More College, and earned a Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, in French and English in 1969. Soon thereafter, she received a Master of Arts in audiology and speech pathology from the University of Cincinnati in 1971. Furthermore, Dr. Marlowe secured a PhD in behavioral science from Walden University in 1986. Whilst receiving academic degrees, she became a licensed audiologist in the State of Florida, and received a certification in clinical competence in audiology from the American Speech & Hearing Association. Additionally, Dr. Marlowe became certified in business quality improvement process management in 1994.
Since 2017, Dr. Marlowe has excelled as the president of the Newborn Hearing Programs & Communication. At the start of her career, she worked as the director of the infant hearing assessment program at the Winter Park Memorial Hospital between 1983 and 1994. During this time, she also served as the owner of her own private practice until 1994. Subsequently, she joined Natus Medical Inc., in the capacity of the director of program development and, later, the director of clinical research and programs until her departure in 2017. For two years, Dr. Marlowe taught ethical leadership studies at Thomas More University until her departure in 2020.
In a career filled with highlights, Dr. Marlowe was proud to have participated in a research fellowship in an office of education study that observed children that are deaf and/or hard of hearing, which discovered differences in their development and behavior. During that time, she was instrumental in developing a program to test every single baby born in a hospital. Eventually, she was able to talk with directors of the hospital and enable teaching parents to help the child develop their hearing. They would be able to listen sounds, thus helping them develop the brain. She recruited volunteers and a company for free equipment for this one particular hospital. Dr. Marlowe began the program, which lead to it being included in the National Institute of Hospital Conference, and it has been ongoing since 1983. The program has gone worldwide, and changes the lives of the babies and their families.
Dr. Marlowe attributes her success to the fact that she had a very wonderful childhood with an encouraging father, who was a professor and inventor of electrical engineering. She also appreciates her Catholic schooling and praises serving others, which makes her the most happiest. In five years, Dr. Marlowe hopes to be the past chair of the board of trustees for Thomas More University and probably go back to teaching, since she enjoys it. She wants to focus mentoring others from several parts of the world and helping them find their best use.
