“Dr. Janelle”, as we call her, joined the Audiological & Speech Associates team in early 2014 after working several years in Richmond and Pittsburgh.
When Dr. Janelle joined our practice, she said working in Beaver was like coming home. “Although I was born and raised in Marion Center, PA, both of my parents and all of my extended family are from Beaver County. As a child, I loved coming to visit my Grandmothers in Beaver and Ambridge. I have always felt a connection with Beaver County due to my strong ties and relationships – the people of Beaver County make me feel at home!”
Janelle is no stranger to the practice of Audiology. “Two of my biggest role models; my mother (Cindy Todd Kisiday) and uncle (Tom Todd) have an Audiology and Speech Pathology practice in Indiana County. It has been a blessing to watch them work so hard to create a respectable, trustworthy business while being able to make a difference in people’s lives. I was so inspired by their work that I decided that’s exactly what I wanted to do. I want my patients to experience a warm and caring environment when they walk through our office door, to trust me, and to know that I am providing them excellent hearing healthcare. The absolute best part of my job is getting to improve the quality of life for not only the patient but for their families as well. I love being able to build relationships with patients. They always have interesting stories to share, and lots of advice to give! This is a very rewarding career.”
Dr. Janelle accomplishes this by listening to her patient’s lifestyle, communication difficulties, and concerns. She works closely with each individual patient to select the best technology available, which she matches to his or her individual lifestyle and budget. She always looks for continuing education opportunities and is enthusiastic about the new technological advances being made in the field of Audiology.
Dr. Kisiday is an active member of the American Academy of Audiology, the Academy of Dispensing Audiologists, the American Speech and Hearing Association and the Golden Key Honor Society.
As an undergraduate student at The Pennsylvania State University, she was awarded the “Alumni Recognition Award for Student Excellence” by the College of Health and Human Sciences. This award is presented annually to an outstanding student in the Communication and Sciences Disorder program for exemplary service to the department and the university. She also received multiple academic awards throughout her academic career.

She moved to the Pittsburgh area in 2013 after graduating from Central Michigan University with her Doctorate degree in audiology.
Lisa’s education and professional experience have allowed her to gain extensive training in providing comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitative hearing services. Dr. Chandonais comes to Audiological & Speech Associates from a large, reputable hospital system in the western Pennsylvania area, and also shares her expertise developed from various work settings, including audiology private practice and private otolaryngology practices.
Dr. Chandonais works diligently to provide the best, personalized care to each individual patient. Living with a family member diagnosed with such a profound loss of hearing has shaped her professional perspective on how she prefers to treat each patient. When caring for patients who are diagnosed with hearing and/or balance disorders, Dr. Chandonais understands the importance of incorporating “evidence-based best practices” as the standard of care for each person. One way this is achieved is by fully listening to her patient’s hearing healthcare needs. Her philosophy is to learn about her patients and to inform them of what they need to know, so they can understand the implications of their hearing disorder and their treatment options. This approach helps lead to a well-educated patient who is cared for with empathy and the utmost professionalism.
“Joining Audiological & Speech Associates has been such a refreshing experience. With this group of professionals, I can work in a cohesive environment that allows me to offer a high level of care within the intimate setting of a private practice.”
Why wait? You don't have to live with hearing loss.
