At Pacific Since:  2015

Kenneth D. Billheimer, AuD earned his bachelor of arts in communication disorders and a master of arts in audiology from California State University, Fresno. He earned a doctor of audiology from Arizona School of Health Sciences in 2003.

Prior to joining the Pacific faculty, Dr. Billheimer spent time in the U.S. Army as an audiologist and in private practice for 30 years. In 2015, he retired from private practice and joined the faculty as an adjunct clinical instructor. In 2017, he became an assistant clinical professor.  

Dr. Billheimer works closely with his fellow faculty members to ensure students are being challenged on clinical procedures they are currently studying. As students gain academic knowledge, he integrates this knowledge into their clinical experience. This close alignment with academic and clinical rotation ensures students can apply their newly acquired knowledge to meaningful clinical skills. 

Between time spent working in private practice and working as an audiologist for the U.S. Army, he has seen first-hand hearing loss from a wide range of causes. He also brings to his role the business acumen gained private practice ownership. From this unique perspective, he can impart business skills and an entrepreneurial spirit that will help students should they pursue a career in private practice.   

An avid gardener, he enjoys wildflower and has a large garden. In his spare time, if it is not raining or too cold, he can be found outside in his yard. He also loves classic cars and has a completely restored 1961 Nash Metropolitan convertible.
