Our Hearing Professionals

Kacy Creswell

Kacy Creswell
AU.D., CCC-A

Dr. Kacy Creswell received her Doctorate in Audiology from Utah State University in 2019 after completing her residency at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. Dr. Creswell is proficient in performing comprehensive audiologic evaluations, vestibular testing, and advanced electrophysiological testing on patients of all ages. When asked why she was so passionate about audiology, Dr. Creswell responded, “So often people don’t realize how a hearing loss can have such a significant impact on their social life, and in turn, their quality of life. I love the field of audiology because it allows me to help patients stay engaged with their loved ones and other important aspects of their life.”

During the 2018 American Auditory Society Conference, Kacy presented her research on the Band Importance Functions for Male and Female Speech. She concluded female talkers, on average, have more weight in the higher frequencies when compared to male talkers. Clinically, this is important to keep in mind when counseling patients about the impacts of hearing impairment and for optimizing audibility of speech when using amplification.

When Dr. Creswell is not busy helping patients with their hearing health, she is enjoying spending time outside backpacking, climbing, and camping with her husband and dog.

Dr. Rachelle Keys moved to Grand Junction in 2021 to join our team at Colorado West Audiologists.

Dr. Keys is passionate about providing evidence-based audiology including diagnostic hearing evaluations, vestibular evaluations, and cochlear implant programming. She especially enjoys seeing the pediatric population noting, “I love providing hearing care that leaves my kiddos laughing and smiling as they leave my office, hopefully making them eager to come back if needed. I want them to have every advantage possible and for the parents to feel confident when it comes to their hearing care.”

When she is not working, Dr. Keys loves the lifestyle Colorado offers and can be found hanging with family in Rifle, CO, or activities such as learning how to snowboard, hiking with her two huskies and husband, and learning the bouldering spots around Junction.
