John graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Master of Science degree in Audiology. John has developed valuable working experience and formal training with a major hearing aid manufacturer and managed various large hearing clinics. Working closely with an Ear Nose and Throat specialist gave John the opportunity to serve both children and adults who suffered from a variety of hearing and ear related concerns. John’s area of interest in audiology includes age-related hearing loss, auditory deprivation, innovative hearing aid technology, and hearing loss counseling. His research on barriers and facilitators in hearing aid uptake in older adults was published in Audiology Research in 2011. By applying both clinical and technical experience, John’s goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of the people he works with, and improve their quality of life.
What sets John apart is his ability to listen and make all his clients — young or old — feel instantly at ease. John is a registered Audiologist with the Ontario College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) and nationally certified with Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC).
