Jeff Germain, Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner
Jeff Germain was inspired to become a Hearing Professional by his parents Ron and Bobbie, the first Beltone practitioners on Vancouver Island – in fact he considers himself to have been a member of the Beltone family for his whole life and has over 23 years of experience in the field.
Marlene Hay, Hearing Care Coordinator
A Port Alberni native, Marlene has been with Beltone since 1999. It was when she previously worked for a podiatrist that she became aware of how many seniors struggle with hearing loss and the communication problems it creates. The difference that hearing aids had made to her own grandmother’s quality of life was when she realized that she really wanted to be a part of this positive experience for others.
Working with our customers gives Marlene what she calls “a really good feeling inside.” She loves seeing how pleased and grateful our first time clients are, to be able to hear sounds they hadn’t heard for several years.
In her spare time Marlene enjoys babysitting her granddaughters, gardening, swimming and reading.
