Any non-fiction content in my blog is an expression of my honest opinion. I do not recommend or endorse any therapy or product. I have no conflict of interest from employment, association or affiliation with any hearing or hyper ears related company, including manufacturers, clinics, sales, etc.

I live in the Pacific Northwest of Canada with my family, two dogs and two cats. I like deadheading, needlework and eating cookies.
