I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan but I grew up on the family farm in the Gatineau Hills in Quebec. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, cum Laude in 1996 and then acquired my Master’s degree Health Science in Audiology in 1999 from the University of Ottawa. I started my career at Hotel Dieu Hospital, in Kingston, Ontario as an Adult and Pediatric Clinical Audiologist as part of the Infant Hearing Program Team. I was also an Academic Instructor Adjunct (Group 1) - academic staff in the Department of Otolaryngology – Queens University. I have been a part of the professional team to fly up to James Bay, Ontario and offer northern services to Moose Factory Wiiniibako Health Ahtuskaywin General Hospital.
In 2011, I moved to Wakefield Quebec and worked in a multidisciplinary Private Practice Clinic before living overseas in the UK. My husband and I have recently been transferred to Victoria BC in July of 2017 and are enjoying everything the Pacific West Coast has to offer. I became an Audiologist because of the amazing way our Auditory cortex is able to analyze the electric impulses coming from our cochlear hair cells and transform them into sounds. As we hear with our brain and not our ears, the continuing advancement in technology have improved hearing aid abilities to stimulate our brain, revolutionizing the way we are now able to hear. Equipped with knowledge of the physiology of hearing, the technology of hearing aids and the qualitative outcome of rehabilitation is the reason why I fell into Audiology.
I am also a longstanding hockey player and an avid photographer. In our spare time, my husband and I, enjoy the surf and the waves at our little piece of paradise in Ucluelet, BC.
I am happy to be a part of the Clinical Team at the Broadmead and Oak Bay Hearing Clinics.
I look forward meeting you and providing you with the best audiology and amplification services as well as continuing support in addressing your hearing healthcare needs.
