Teresa Prothman, Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner

Teresa considers her work to be not just a job, or even a career – it’s her calling. She believes that working in hearing care allows her to directly affect her clients’ quality of life and wellbeing. In fact, she wishes that more people were aware of how important good hearing is to every aspect of communication in their lives. Teresa truly appreciates the loyalty of Beltone customers, many of whom have been with us for years.

When not at work, Bonnie stays busy spending time in the outdoors, hiking with her husband, two toddlers and shaggy dog, Bosco.


Carol McLennan

Carol worked as an assistant to a Hearing Instrument Practitioner in her native London, Ontario, before coming to work with us at Beltone. She wanted to continue in the industry because she so enjoyed seeing the positive impact that properly fitted hearing aids can make on people’s lives and family relationships. Carol knows that, because hearing loss is an invisible handicap, it can cause anxiety, depression, frustration, social isolation and fatigue. She has witnessed for herself how much hearing aids can alleviate these symptoms and improve a person’s quality of life.

Carol works in our Campbell River office and with the Comox HomeTeam. In her spare time she enjoys playing golf and tennis, and skiing.


Kim Saunders

An Abbotsford native, Kim has been with Beltone since 2001. She knew that working with Beltone would be a perfect fit for her when she was asked at the interview “Do you enjoy working with people of all ages?” She loves working with people and having a positive impact on their lives; she especially enjoys seeing how hearing aids can help elderly people reconnect with all their family members. Kim feels very strongly that nobody should be prevented from engaging with their family because communication becomes too difficult. She encourages everyone to have their hearing checked rather than just dismissing the issue or making excuses.

In her spare time Kim enjoys spending time with her own family, especially her grandchildren, riding her motorcycle and travelling.
