“If someone has a difference of any kind, it doesn’t mean they have less of a future. Anything is possible.”
Lisa’s brother was born blind, and that was a time when there weren’t all the tools and resources that are available today. She says we’ve come so far in being able to support people to the point where they have no limitations. “It’s why I love what I do today,” she says. “I’ve seen how people can thrive when they’re given the support and resources they need. Being a part of Phonak helps to make this happen.”
Lisa worked as a clinical speech-language pathologist in Canada for over 15 years before joining Phonak HQ in 2016. In her role as Rehabilitation Manager, she strives to offer resources that give children and adults the skills they need to communicate with confidence. In her role as Editorial Manager, she aims to keep hearing care professionals informed on all topics related to audiology. Lisa received her undergraduate degree from Western University, Canada and her graduate degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Western Michigan University, USA.
