Dr. Jennifer Reekers, co-owner of Heartland Hearing Center, graduated from the #1 ranked audiology program in 2009, The University of Iowa, with her Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree. As a small child, Dr. Reekers 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. Her older brother also experienced the identical medical history & surgery. Given her own hearing loss, Dr. Reekers offers a unique perspective on wearing a hearing aid & living with hearing loss.
As a clinical audiologist, Dr. Reekers 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.

“Who better to advise first time hearing aid customers than someone who has not only received the best training, but who also has first hand personal experience wearing a hearing aid. Jennifer at Heartland Hearing Center answers any and all concerns a first time user of hearing aids could have, with patience and knowledge. I found Heartland's willingness to allow me to test my hearing aids sufficiently before purchasing, allowed me to make an informed decision that met my needs. Customer service is first rate and you always feel valued when dealing with Heartland.”
“I can't say enough about this company and their service! From the moment I walked in the door, I felt right at home and very comfortable. Diana Kain's knowledge and expertise were outstanding as were her customer service skills. She administered a hearing test and fit me with hearing aids that are best suited for me and my type of hearing loss. The technology available for hearing aids now is amazing and Diana took all the time I needed to show me how to access this technology and make it work for me. She even took the time to follow up with me the following day to see how I was getting along. Overall......I couldn't be more pleased!! ”
