In many ways I have grown up in the "Audiology World". My father was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) in his twenties. With NF2 tumours can develop in and around the auditory nerve. My father had to have routine hearing assessments for this reason. This is where he met my mother, who was his audiologist. When I was 2 years old my father became deaf and unable to speak after having surgery to remove his tumours.
Once he had recovered from his surgery, my family decided to try and learn American Sign Language. My communication with my father was mostly through broken sign language and the use of communication aids. At a young age I learned the value of communication and had to develop tools to help overcome barriers. With these life lessons, it gave me the drive to become an Audiologist who could help others communicate with their loved ones.
My goal for Lake Huron Audiology is to foster a community hub where families will have access to strategies and local resources which will help them overcome their own communication barriers.
