Lisa LeannaLisa Leanna has been helping people hear better since 1995. She began in Wisconsin as a repair tech, which gives her great insight on how hearing aids work. She attends frequent trainings on hearing aid technology to keep up with the latest technology to help patients hear the best they can. In her spare time she enjoys card making, scrapbooking, and jewelry making when she is not spending time with her husband and son. She is looking forward to bringing her expertise to the residents of the Great Falls area and helping them along their journey toward better hearing.



Carol ZielinskeCarol Zielinske is a transplant to Montana from Wyoming. Carol started with The Hearing Place in the summer of 2016. She has worked in the service environment most of her life, from managing a grocery store to having her own coffee roasting company. She came to us from a medical facility in Great Falls, although she lives north of Great Falls in Dutton. She enjoys being around people and helping them reach their full potential. Suffering from a hearing loss herself, she is pleased to be able to share her hearing aid experience with our patients and let them know that they have come to the right place for their hearing needs.

Carol enjoys the outdoors with her rescue dogs and gets to the mountains and her favorite fishing spots as often as possible.

"The thing that impressed me the most was being able to hear my grandchildren and sounds of nature such as birds. The staff was friendly and made me feel very comfortable and at ease."
