Jennifer Appleton-Huber, Scientific Audiologist

“It’s those stories you never forget. It’s why I love what I do.”

When working in a clinic, Jennifer met a woman who lost her hearing in her 30s. She was lost. She couldn’t even have a conversation with her Mum via FaceTime. When Jennifer fit her with her first hearing aid, “Her whole face lit up,” she says. “She came alive.” It was those magical moments that brought her to Phonak so she could help shape the future of hearing aid technology.
