Educational leader and pioneer Dr. Patricia Castellanos is a bilingual entrepreneur, researcher and executive based in Guatemala. As Founder and CEO of the Centro de Audición (CEDAF), a center that provides audiological services, she has grown the organization to serve on the international scale.
Having been introduced to the audiological services and education field during a study abroad program, Patricia is driven by a passion for giving those who may otherwise have never known the gift of hearing a chance to listen in and join the larger conversation. She established CEDAF in 1990, and also started the Smiles that Listen Foundation, to make it possible for those who cannot afford hearing devices to have access to these life-changing tools and opportunities.
Hands on in her management style, Patricia oversees every aspect of her businesses, from patient care to finance, and ensures the quality of service and operations remain at the highest quality. Her work has been published in “Audiology without Borders,” Audiology in Developing Countries (CH. 10), and featured in the 2015 ENT NEWS.
Patricia holds an AuD in Audiology from the University of Florida EEUU, and a master’s in Education of the Hearing Impaired from Gallaudet University. In addition to being a lifetime member of the ISFP, she is affiliated with Global Audiology, Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni, and the American Academy of Audiology.
