Hearing Instrument Practitioner & Office Administrator: Lori Pearson
Lori Pearson hails from a long line of nurses. Her mother, father and older brother all joined the nursing profession and it was only natural that Lori became a nurse too. Born and raised in Kingston Ontario, Lori grew up in the city surrounded by her vast extended family and friends. Her admiration for arts and culture has fueled her love of exotic cuisine, dance and travel. It was when she met her husband 24 years ago that she was introduced to outdoor leisure and fell in love with "lake life" and nature adventures. The relocation to Kenora was a big change, but a surprisingly natural one.
She earned her Registered Practical Nursing diploma from Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough, ON. Lori worked as a nurse for eleven years, five of those years at Kenora's Pinecrest Home before entering the Hearing Aid Practitioner course at MacEwan University in Edmonton. Lori has graduated and is now registered as a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist with the Association of Hearing Instrument Practitioners of Ontario.
Lori can usually be found in the blueberry patch, reading a book, gardening, and trying to get her daily 10,000 steps.
