Despite coming from a family with a history of hearing loss, Brent went through high school as a confident student athlete with a broad social group. It wasn't until his late 20’s that he started to experience hearing loss, and says “it created challenges that I wasn’t quite prepared for." Brent waited as long as he possibly could to get hearing aids.
Brent struggled with the hearing aids and became a follower in the workplace. After finding Esteem, he is now is a leader in his workplace and a business owner. "When it comes to the activities of daily living: working out, taking a shower, going to the beach or just sleeping, those are things that I couldn’t do with a hearing aid," said Brent. "Now, life is more enjoyable. My family’s life is better."
