Rhonda Martin

Hearing Instrument Specialist

Rhonda Martin began her hearing home care service in 1988 and opened her first hearing clinic in 1991 in Toronto’s east end. Rhonda has been treating people with hearing loss for over 35 years and has helped over 20,000 people restore their quality of life through better hearing. Rhonda grew up in the East York community and was drawn to the hearing industry because it gave her a chance to work with the people in her neighbourhood, many of whom she grew up with. She has many years of experience in diverse health settings, including the Canadian Hearing Society, Toronto East General Hospital and the Albany Medical Clinic.

Rhonda assisted in developing the curriculum and has taught for many years at George Brown College in Toronto. She has also become a leading expert in providing hearing protection, especially to musicians, and has worked with some of the greatest names in music. Rhonda holds an Ontario College Advanced Diploma as a Hearing Instrument Specialist and is a member of the Association of Hearing Instrument Specialists of Ontario.

Sandra Bouranova


Sandra Bouranova joined the Hear for Life healthcare team in 2013. She was inspired to practice as a hearing professional in the hearing field at a young age. Growing up with family members suffering from hearing loss, Sandra witnessed the positive impact seeking help from a hearing professional made on the quality of their lives. Good hearing health provided them with the ability to participate more socially at work and have less stress overall.

Sandra believes that as a hearing professional, she is the initial point of contact for many people who are suffering from the effects of hearing loss and do not know where to turn for help and support. She thoroughly enjoys listening to her client’s stories about their family, career and personal well-being. Getting to know her clients one-on-one is an important part of understanding their hearing issues and introducing a better quality of life to them through good hearing healthcare.

Sandra holds a bachelor’s degree with honours in linguistic cognitive science from McMaster University and a master’s degree in audiological science from University College London in London, UK. She is a member of the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario. Sandra is fluent in English, French, Macedonian and Russian.

Sandra resides in Toronto and enjoys going to St. Lawrence and Kensington Markets and visiting some of Toronto’s beautiful parks during her spare-time.
