Belonging to a lively, loud and loving network comprised of family members and friends has taught Martine Schlagintweit the value of ease of communication from an early age. A deep appreciation of quality communication, and an understanding of the connection that is missed when hearing impairment interferes with our ability to communicate, is what drives Martine’s passion for helping her clients optimise their hearing health. As an audiologist with Broadmead Hearing Clinic, she combines contemporary clinical knowledge with the latest advances in hearing aid technology to create solutions that allow her clients to achieve their communication potential.
Martine completed her undergraduate degree, a B.Sc. in Linguistics, at the University of Victoria in 2014. Following a two-year interim spent travelling the world and working in a variety of healthcare settings, she enrolled at the University of British Columbia in 2016 to complete her Masters in Audiology. There Martine received a Canadian Academy of Audiology student award for academic excellence and her work promoting the profession of audiology; she was also recognized by Speech and Audiology Canada for having achieved the highest score on the clinical licensing examination in her sitting.
A good laugh is never hard to come by with Martine, and its her personal goal to make sure you always hear the punch line! She looks forward to meeting you.
