Meet Our Team

Highly Qualified Professionals

We opened our doors in 2011 and the response from the community has been overwhelming. People have been so pleased with our level of care that they love to refer their friends and family members. Being residents of Newcastle, we truly are local. Our professional team is prepared to work with any and all hearing aid models to ensure they are providing the greatest assistance possible.



John grew up hard of hearing from a young age and decided to dedicate his career to helping others who experience the same frustrations. It is because of this that he graduated from the Hearing Instrument Specialist program at George Brown College in 2006 and is a member of the Association of Hearing Instrument Practitioners of Ontario. John began his work in hearing aid clinics in 2004 and also worked for a hearing aid manufacturer as a Product and Education Specialist. John continued to pursue excellence and became the first Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist in Durham Region with international accreditation. John and his wife Becky have a young son and daughter together. In his spare time John can be found volunteering within the community, hiking and enjoying culinary challenges.
