Sasha Brown obtained her Master of Science (Audiology) from UBC in 2000 and has been working at WorkSafeBC since. She started in the Hearing Loss Unit working with people with Occupational Noise Induced Hearing Loss claims. She then moved to Health Care Services, where she oversaw the delivery of hearing aids, hearing aid services and batteries to those with accepted hearing loss claims. These two positions together allowed her to see the significant social and financial implications of Occupational Noise Induced Hearing Loss, and the need to reduce, or ideally, prevent its occurrence. Sasha is now in Prevention and Occupational Disease Initiatives attempting to impact the prevalence of ONIHL.
