Dr. Jennifer Reekers, co-owner of Heartland Hearing Center, graduated from the top-ranked audiology program, University of Iowa, in 2009 with her Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree. As a small child, Jennifer experienced chronic ear infections, multiple sets of ear tubes & the discovery of a cholesteatoma (abnormal skin-mass that grew behind her left eardrum) requiring surgery to remove the tumor & reconstruct her eardrum. Given her own mild-to-moderately severe unilateral hearing loss, Jennifer offers a unique perspective on living with hearing loss.
As a clinical audiologist, Jennifer has primarily worked in Veterans Affairs hospitals & private Ear, Nose, and Throat clinics. The bulk of her practice was spent doing what she enjoys the most: diagnostics, hearing aid fittings, and counseling.
Diana Kain, co-owner of Heartland Hearing Center, has been practicing audiology since 2001, primarily within the Diagnostic Audiology Clinic at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. Diana is greatly well rounded as she started her career doing tinnitus research, cochlear implant research, & counseling/programming of cochlear implant patients. The bulk of her experience was spent working alongside Ear, Nose & Throat physicians to diagnose hearing loss. During the last few years, Diana entered into private practice to focus on counseling, hearing aid technology & amplification to improve hearing.
Diana's passion for hearing began while growing up with a brother with hearing loss. At 18 months, her brother was diagnosed with severe-to-profound hearing loss due to meningitis. At a very young age, Diana experienced first-hand the daily struggles a person with hearing loss experiences. She has dedicated her life to educating people about hearing loss & the importance of hearing health care.
