Dr. Rushing studied biology at UL Lafayette earning both bachelors and masters degrees in the field. There she studied hair cells in sea anemones. Sea anemones detect vibrations in the water utilizing the same mechanisms that the human ear uses to detect vibrations in the air. The sensory cells in both sea anemones and human ears that detects vibrations are called “hair cells”. However, sea anemones and other animals can repair their hair cells, but humans cannot. Dr. Glen Watson’s lab at UL Lafayette studies the ways that sea anemones and zebra fish repair these cells in hopes to help people with hearing loss one day. The time spent in the lab inspired Dr. Rushing to learn more about human hearing. She enrolled at Louisiana State University’s Health Sciences Center in the Audiology Doctoral program. While studying at LSUHSC, she participated in audiological research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, learning from the nation’s leading research audiologists. Also while at LSUHSC, she completed the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) traineeship. She earned a Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from LSU Health Sciences Center in 2012. At graduation, she was awarded the LSUHSC School of Allied Health Professions Chancellor's Award for scholarship, leadership, and professional excellence. Throughout her graduate studies at LSUHSC she was on faculty at River Parishes Community College and continues to teach courses each semester for RPCC.

“I am so glad I went to see Erin Rushing. I can hear but I couldn't understand what people were saying. Now I can hear what people are saying and understanding. She is a nice person and she knows what she is doing when it comes to hearing loss. ”
“I was worried that my visit would be rushed and I wouldn’t get the full attention of my hearing problem. As soon as I checked in I felt a little bit at ease because I was the only one there. When Dr. Rushing took me to the back and sat down with me to discuss exactly what issues I was having, I was able to relax a little bit more. Dr. Rushing put me in the hearing both and explained the test every step of the way. After the testing was done she sat me down to go over the results, Dr. Rushing was the first Dr. that had actually showed me on paper exactly what my problem was and how to go about fixing it. Dr.Rushing is very thorough with her exams, as well as informative. She will make you feel comfortable and makes sure that you understand your condition!! I highly recommend Dr. Rushing for your hearing problems!!”
