Dr. Fennell’s education began in 1989 when she obtained a Degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from the University of Alberta. She attained her Master’s Degree in Audiology from the University of North Texas in 1995 and in 2006 she earned her Doctor of Audiology Degree from Central Michigan University. That same year was honored by the University of North Texas as an Outstanding Alumnus.
Diane has 20 years of experience specializing in hearing loss and in the fitting of innovative hearing aids. She owned and managed a successful downtown Calgary hearing clinic and has worked as an Audiologist in public health and education. These experiences have further added to Diane’s expertise in the field. Because of her extensive knowledge, both in the diagnosis of hearing loss and of advanced hearing aid technology, Diane was offered, and accepted a position at Grant MacEwan University as an instructor in the Hearing Aid Practitioner program and has also privately contracted her services.
Dr. Fennell is thrilled to return to private practice and open her own new, modern clinic with the latest, up to date state of the art equipment. Diane takes pride in providing you with outstanding, personalized care and service. As an independent provider and owner, she has the flexibility and it is indeed her mission to select products from a variety of manufacturers and to fit and adjust them optimally for you based on your individual hearing needs. Diane commits to provide support to you as you adjust to your new devices. She wants your hearing experience to be positive and happy, and will work with you during your appointment to make your adaptation to wearing hearing aids as easy as possible. She will address any questions and concerns that you may have as she genuinely enjoys keeping up with advances in technology and helping people to improve their communication skills.
Over the years, Diane has volunteered her time and expertise to several professional organizations, and continues to do so, in addition to supporting all ages of the hard of hearing in her community.
As native Calgarians, Diane, her husband Wayne and their dog Lisa enjoy exploring the US and Canada in their recreational vehicle.
