Message from our Audiologist
During my four decades working in the field of Audiology, I have come to appreciate the importance of good hearing in maintaining my clients quality of life. I understand that my clinical decisions are extremely important to my clients. When people put their trust in me, I will always try to exceed their expectations.

Why did you get into Audiology?
“I grew up surrounded by the profession with my father the audiologist and my mother a Speech Language Pathologist. Since my dad started this company I have helped out in various roles during summers and other school breaks. Over the years I found myself regularly drawn back to the business even when looking at other avenues of life. Finally I realized that there was a reason I was being drawn back and audiology is where I belong.”
