Sandra, I think all that you said is true.
Many of the people I know who were able to continue working in
Audiology, however, could afford the luxury of doing so.
Its not unreasonable for someone whose taken 20K of student loans to
expect a  salary that will allow financial obligations to be met.
Now that I've returned to Speech, we are finally able to send my
husband back to school, and I am finally able to have my allergy shots
and dental work. Had I remained in Audiology, it would have taken me
years to achieve basic financial goals.
Congratulations to everyone struggling and succeeding in private

Kate (Happy to be dually certified)
