Credentials and Bio: My name is Katarina Vavrovicova and I am a clinical Doctor of Audiology, registered with the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia and certified by Speech-Language & Audiology Canada.  I graduated from Blooms­burg University of Pennsylvania in the USA with a doctoral degree in Audiology in 2006 and relo­cated to practice in Beautiful British Columbia. I have been working with physicians and the med­ical community in the Vancouver area for several years and my focus is on restoring hearing and communication with a passion for helping people and improving their well-being state. I recognize the importance of being able to hear well, and how the quality of one's hearing can have a direct influence on a person's social life, physical well-being, and emotional state.

My previous experience includes working as a clinical supervisor at the School of Audiology & Speech Sciences, and participating in a multi-year research study at the University of British Columbia.
