I’m Tracy Wentzel, an audiologist here at Bow River Hearing.
I studied speech pathology and audiology in South Africa where I found my passion working with individuals with hearing loss. Over the course of my career, I have specialized in hearing aids with my master’s thesis focusing on satisfaction with hearing aids. I have worked in many different clinical settings as well as for a couple of hearing aid manufacturers. I really enjoy learning about the ins and outs of hearing aid technology and how to ensure it is put to the best use for each individual person. In South Africa, I also really enjoyed providing clinical guidance to students and junior therapists while working in a public health care setting. I am a bit of a perfectionist and carry this into my work through the thoroughness of my testing. I also aim to ensure every person who steps into my office learns something new and feels comfortable explaining their hearing test results to their friends and family.
My family and I moved to Calgary in 2018 and fell in love with the city! We are enjoying our new adventure in this beautiful country that we now call home. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, young son, and my two cats.
