Dr. Lia Best Au.D., R.Aud., Aud(c)

What I love most about being an Audiologist is that I can make an immediate positive impact in someone's life by improving their hearing. For many of us, hearing is how we communicate with others, appreciate music, and have awareness of what is around us. I became an Audiologist because of my grandfather. He served in WWII and experienced noise-induced hearing loss. I was inspired by how much his Audiologist changed his life by improving his hearing and helping him reconnect with his family and friends.

I was born in Toronto but I have lived most of my life on the West Coast. I moved to Victoria in 2004 to attend the University of Victoria where I completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I moved back to Vancouver in 2011 to complete a Masters degree in Audiology at the University of British Columbia. I have been working at the Broadmead Hearing Clinic since 2013. Two years ago I decided to go back to school while working full-time to complete my Doctorate in Audiology from the University of Florida.

Being an audiologist is very rewarding. Every day I feel fortunate to work with the most cutting-edge hearing aid technology, our wonderful clients, and an amazing team of colleagues. I am proud to work at an independent hearing clinic that puts the needs of our clients first. I will work very hard to find a hearing solution that suits your unique hearing needs.

When I’m not in the office you can find me hiking or cycling on some of Vancouver Island’s beautiful trails, playing soccer, working on my knitting projects, or playing piano.

I look forward to meeting you,

Lia
