Julie grew up in Southern Ontario and considers Burlington her hometown. In 2013, she graduated from the University of Ottawa with her master’s degree in health science, audiology. That same year, she completed her final student placement at Davidson Hearing Aid Centres and began working there as an audiologist soon afterwards.
Choosing audiology as a profession was an easy choice for Julie, as it offered her the perfect balance between working with people and technology. Several factors attracted Julie to working at Davidson Hearing Aid Centres; she appreciates that it is a family-owned business with a great work environment. Also, by being an independent clinic, this allows the team to offer the most product options, meaning clients have a wider variety of solutions for their hearing needs.
Julie’s main responsibility as an audiologist is to help individuals with a hearing loss by providing them and their families with information, counselling and recommendations, with the objective of improving the way they can hear and access the world. She offers hearing evaluations, wax removal, hearing aid programming and maintenance, and tinnitus management to our patients.
Although Julie loves so many aspects of her work, she particularly likes seeing how the tools she uses continue to evolve and improve over time. She says hearing aid technology has already come so far and she looks forward to watching how it will continue to develop in the future.
Outside of work, Julie enjoys baking, reading and hiking.
