Dr. Emily Camacho is licensed in Arizona as a Doctor of Audiology and Dispensing Audiologist. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology/Audiology and Bachelor of Arts in American Sign Language (ASL)/Deaf Studies from California State University, Sacramento. Dr. Camacho has full professional proficiency in ASL after immersing herself in the signing Deaf community, tutoring other students in ASL, and completing her undergraduate coursework in Sacramento. She went on to obtain her Clinical Doctorate of Audiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, and completed her externship training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

As a graduate student, Emily was a scholarship recipient of a two-year Pediatric Audiology Specialization program, which was funded by the Department of Education. She and a select group of scholars were enrolled in additional courses, attended lectures, created educational materials, and volunteered for events catered towards the pediatric population.

While completing graduate coursework and clinical training, Emily was an active member of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA), an SAA task force member for audiology students with hearing loss, an advisor for Deaf Teen Club, and a volunteer for DEAF, Inc. ╸a non-profit organization dedicated to serving and empowering D/deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) individuals, and educating the local community about hearing loss/deafness.

Dr. Camacho is a member of the American Academy of Audiology and the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. She enjoys working with patients across the lifespan, and specializes in pediatric amplification/assistive technology and aural (re)habilitation. Dr. Camacho was diagnosed with hearing loss as a toddler and used hearing aids for both ears successfully before her transition to cochlear implants in graduate school. Dr. Camacho’s clinical experience and personal testimony with hearing loss allows her to provide a customized approach for every patient and their communicative needs, regardless of language modality. 

Dr. Camacho is originally from El Centro, California and currently lives in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Her hobbies include going to concerts, traveling, getting crafty, and lounging around with her Chinese Shar-Pei Shiwa while enjoying a good movie, show, or book.
