A patient’s tears of joy clinched it for Fawn Povelofskie of Hear Clear, Fawn’s Hearing Solutions in Williams Lake.

The hearing instrument practitioner distinctly remembers fitting a gentleman with a new hearing aid, when he began to cry.

“I was shocked and asked what was wrong. He looked up and said ‘nothing is wrong, I am happy that I can hear again. Thank you.’

“This is when I knew that this is what I was meant to do for the rest of my life,” recalls Povelofskie. “The reward I felt inside was amazing.”

Born and raised in Williams Lake, Povelofskie didn’t have a  clear path of what to do after graduation but knew she wanted to help people in some way.

She started researching courses by visiting colleges and talking to counsellors about possible, suitable fields for her. One counsellor suggested she may want to consider becoming a pharmacy technician.

“I thought this would be a rewarding career so I signed up for the course,” Povelofskie says. “After graduating I jumped into pharmacy and started working.”

Though she liked the job, she says she felt like something was still missing. She was then offered a job at a hearing clinic as an assistant.

“I really enjoyed the hearing clinic position and registered with the college to study to become a registered hearing instrument practitioner,” she says, adding four years later she also furthered her education at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, taking the Industrial Audiometric Technician training.

After working as a registered hearing instrument practitioner for six years and an industrial audiometric technician for two years, Povelofskie, who is also a member of the Williams Lake & District Chamber of

Commerce, decided to open up her own clinic.

At the clinic she will concentrate on high-quality care and service providing hearing tests, hearing aid sales, service and accessories in a modern facility with all new state-of-the-art equipment for Williams Lake, Quesnel, 100 Mile House and surrounding area.

In addition, she will provide custom-fit ear plugs, swim plugs, musician plugs, custom IPod plugs and qualitative fit tests for dust masks and respirators.

“It’s been an honour to work in this remarkable community,” she says, adding her business philosophy is “we appreciate you.”

Hear Clear, Fawn’s Hearing Solutions is located at 77B Second Ave. North in Williams Lake.
