I was born and raised in Princeton, BC, which is where I experienced my first hearing test, in the parking lot of our local sawmill, where I worked on the weekends during high school. It wasn't until years later, when I first shadowed an audiologist, that I realized that my experience with hearing tests - anxiously sitting in the back of a mobile truck, wearing a pair of headphones and having no idea what I was supposed to do with the button I was holding - was atypical, to say the least.
I completed my undergraduate degree in biochemistry in Kelowna, at UBC Okanagan. After graduating, I spent some time travelling throughout Southeast Asia and across Canada. I then returned to school to complete my Masters Degree in audiology at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Since then, I have worked in a private practice setting, primarily working with adults who have hearing loss. In May, 2018, I received the SAC National Certification Exam Award, which is given to the audiologist who attains the highest score on the clinical certification exam in Canada each year.
I have a particular interest in hearing rehabilitation through the diagnosis and counselling of hearing loss, and I am excited to join the amazing team at Broadmead and Oak Bay Hearing Clinics.
In my spare time, I like to listen to and play music, read, and play basketball and golf.
