Meet Jennifer La Borde BA, BC-HIS
I am a Board-Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist. At Family Hearing, “hear” is 4/5s of the word “heart”. Our clients continue to reflect the heart and customer care we provide to our community. Our motto is “We are Hear4U”.
I stumbled onto this amazing industry as a teenager when I took an American Sign Language (ASL) class. I instantly fell in love with the language and culture. My teacher was profoundly Deaf and wore a hearing aid to help her hear environmental sounds. I immediately recognized that I wanted to pursue a profession where I could help people connect to the world around them. I originally thought I’d help by becoming an ASL interpreter, but after I discovered both of my parents had hearing loss, I became interested in how I could help people reconnect to their world by regaining their hearing. In my free time, I enjoy dancing and have practiced ballet for over 30 years. Recently my husband and I have been focusing on Argentine Tango with an opportunity so spend a few weeks dancing tango in Buenos Aires! We also enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with our family.
I’ve been working in the Hearing Healthcare Industry for 18 years and have found that being a part of my client’s reconnection to the sounds of life has affirmed that my professional choice and inspired me to find ways to touch others lives. My daily interactions have given me the opportunity to support others enrichment as well as my own. I’ve helped my grandparents, parents, uncle and mother-in-law all achieve better hearing so I understand firsthand what it’s like to have those personal connections strengthened through better communication. Our seasoned professionals at Family Hearing each have their own personal stories about how they became experts in hearing care industry.
