Tell us a bit about yourself

I had a sudden hearing loss in one ear and became single sided in 1971. I wore hearing aids for 20 years. Back then there wasn’t any treatment available, so I just sort of faked it for the next 15 years. In the mid-1980s I started wearing Bi-CROS hearing aids. They were fair to poor in the best of circumstances. I learned about the Baha® in 2005 and did a test drive comparing it with newer Bi-CROS aids. The Baha provided sound, clarity and volume unequaled by the hearing aids and I was convinced. I currently wear the Baha 5.

I derive great satisfaction from guiding mentees as they take steps toward hearing. As a recipient myself, I’ve “been there and done that,” and I’m able to relate to their experiences. There are hearing solutions and together we can explore them. You are not alone on your hearing journey.
