Experience You Can Trust

Dianne Earle, HIS

Dianne began her career in the hearing field in 1975, practising as an Audiology Technician at the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre, This field is of personal interest as she suffered complications from a childhood illness that left her with permanent hearing loss. This experience has provided her with considerable insight into living with hearing difficulties. Dianne decided to leave public practice and eventually moved to a private hearing clinic in 1986. She remained there until she decided to begin her own practice in 1994.

Bill Earle, HIS

Bill began his career in the hearing field in 1994, while assisting Dianne with establishing her new hearing practice. He obtained licensing as a hearing instrument practitioner in 1996. Bill finds this work both challenging and rewarding. With over 34 years of living with an individual with a hearing loss, he also has considerable insight into how hearing loss impacts not only the affected individual but those around him/her.

When he is not working or attending continuing education sessions, Bill also enjoys camping, the outdoors, wood and metal working, his pets, and his beautiful and energetic grandchildren Connor, Regan and Meadow.

Toby Penney, CSS, HIS

Originally from the West Coast, Toby joined the practice in 2002. Toby has experience and a background in computer hardware and technology support. After completing a diploma in Computer Support Specialist from The College of the North Atlantic in 2002, he furthered his education and obtained licensing as a Hearing Instrument Practitioner in 2004. Tony finds his career in the hearing field rewarding, and has even served as an executive member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Hearing Aid Dealers Board with a focus on maintaining educational standards for the province.

When Toby is not working, he has a very busy household with three young and energetic children, yet he still finds time to indulge in his hobby of computers.
