Our Clinic

About Us

Our expert team of Registered Audiologists/Hearing Instrument Practitioners have a long history of providing excellence in hearing health care.

About Us

Our philosophy is to work with each individual to develop a personalized hearing rehabilitation program that best fits your hearing needs, lifestyle, support network, and budget. We believe in a no-pressure approach because the decision to purchase hearing aids is deeply personal to each person’s circumstances.

Our Hearing Aid Clinics fit all brands of hearing aids, do not give preferential treatment to any particular hearing aid brand, and operate independently from hearing aid manufacturers. We also believe that the use of a hearing aid is only one part of the process to helping you better cope with your hearing loss. Our clinicians will also work with you to discuss strategies to better manage your hearing loss, and encourage you to enroll in aural rehabilitation speech reading classes. Wavefront Centre offers free monthly classes to our clients who obtain a hearing aid from us.

We also serve all clients including clients from:

  • WorkSafeBC
  • Veterans Affairs Canada
  • Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction
  • Inter-Tribal Health Authority
  • Non-Insured Health Benefits for First Nations
  • Private extended health coverage

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

 

Camping – Green Lake, Beautiful B.C.


I LOVE to Camp, especially off the grid – the less modern technology, the better.

I grew up with a profound hearing loss – my daughter was 21 years old when I heard her voice for the first time with the aid of a Cochlear implant. Since then, I love to be in nature and listen to the sounds of water, birds chirping and raindrops falling. Time away from technology leaves me refreshed, rejuvenated and grateful for the gift of hearing. At Wavefront Centre, I’m fortunate to work with the Audiology Drop-in Program. I clean hearing aids, troubleshoot and do minor repairs. I love client work and find myself inspired each day by clients’ stories of living with hearing loss.

What is your favourite food?

 

Impossible question! I love food and am notoriously NOT a picky eater, which I credit to my time living in a dorm room.


I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta but am proud to call myself a Vancouverite since moving to this beautiful city in 2010. The best part of my job as an audiologist is when clients and their families tell me how much better they can communicate after coming to Wavefront. I enjoy getting to know people from all walks of life and hearing their stories – I look forward to meeting you too!

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

 

Camping in Iceland


I graduated from the program of Audiology and Speech Sciences at the University of British Columbia in 2011. I worked at BC children’s hospital and Miracle Ear Canada for 7 years prior to joining the Wavefront Centre in 2018.

 

I am certified in Tinnitus Retraining Therapy and have been providing treatment for tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance.

 

As a Clinical Instructor with UBC School of Audiology and Speech Sciences, I provide training to audiology students.

 

Outside of work, I enjoy reading on diverse subjects, birding, and doing outdoor sports.

What is your favourite thing about working at Wavefront Centre?

 

Working with such an amazing and collaborative team!


I grew up on the east coast in Nova Scotia and graduated from the audiology program at the University of Western Ontario in 2020. After graduation I made my way to the west coast. I am thrilled to be a part of Wavefront and to help people reach their communication goals. When I am not working, you can find me on the ski slopes or exploring new hikes that Vancouver has to offer!

What is your favourite thing about working at Wavefront Centre?

 

Having the chance to work with such great people! All of the staff at Wavefront inspire me everyday to be the best clinician I can be.


I was born in Croatia and moved with my parents to Canada when I was five years old. Growing up, I would spend most of the year on Vancouver Island, going to school and enjoying all the beauty of the West Coast, and in the summer, I would go back to Croatia to spend time on the Adriatic coast and enjoy quality time with my extended family. I was truly lucky to have the best of both worlds. Clinically, I believe in a patient-centered and collaborative hearing healthcare model and I enjoy helping my patients achieve all their hearing health goals.

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

 

I went to Australia for a year, and it was amazing!


I grew up with a sister who is hard of hearing, and who has worked at Wavefront Centre for longer than I have! Actually, my interest in audiology developed when I took over her Saturday receptionist duties when she became an audiologist at Wavefront Centre in 2013. My favourite part about working here is the diverse, inclusive, and passionate people, both staff and clients, that I learn new and valuable things from every day.

What is your favourite thing about working at Wavefront Centre?

 

I work with great people! I cannot do my job without the amazing support from everyone I work with. Not only are they great at what they do, they are genuinely super nice people!


I have worked as an Audiologist for almost 27 years; over 18 of these years have been with Wavefront Centre. When I am not working, my favorite escape is to be hiking to remote glacier lakes or stand-up paddling in the ocean.

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

 

Peru


I started my audiology career in the East Kootenay, providing comprehensive hearing health care in remote areas of BC. A few years later I moved back home, striving to continue empowering those who come through the agency. When I am not in the clinic, I can be found on a yoga mat, behind a camera, or on a trail.

What is your favourite thing about working at Wavefront Centre?

 

Working at Wavefront has given me the skills to help people to hear better. Our clients are some of the best people I have ever met. I am also thankful for the wonderful people I get to work with.


I grew up in North Vancouver and moved to Vancouver Island where I worked and raised my children for almost 20 years. I moved back to the mainland to be closer to my large family and to find more opportunities for my children. Best decision I’ve ever made.
