Growing up I was always aware of children at school who faced challenges due to speech and language problems. So after completing my first year at the University of Western Ontario in general sciences, I applied to the Programme in Communicative Disorders with the idea of becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist.
Once in the program I studied both Speech-language Pathology and Audiology. As I entered my fourth year I realized that I really wanted to practice Audiology. The combination of working with clients and the technical side involved with testing and hearing aids appealed to me. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Speech-language Pathology and Audiology, I returned to Western to complete my Masters Degree in Audiology.
After 30 years practicing as an Audiologist I am still excited and inspired by the work I do. Hearing and communication are so essential to our relationships with family and friends. I love helping clients restore their ability to connect again with the people that are important in their lives.
