Juliane Shantz

B.A. (HONS.) M.Cl.Sc., AuD., Reg. CASLPO – Doctor of Audiology

Juliane Shantz received a Bachelor of Arts with honours majoring in Psychology and Linguistics in 1993 from Brock University in St. Catharines. She earned a Master of Clinical Science from the University of Western Ontario in 1997. Her student research comparing linear and compression hearing instruments was published in The Ear and Hearing Journal in 1999. Juliane completed her Doctorate in Audiology in 2004 from the Arizona School of Health Sciences. Juliane is interested in research in all areas of audiology with a keen interest in vestibular and balance disorders. She studied under Dr. Powel Jastreboff to receive her Tinnitus Retraining Therapy certification; also she studied under Dr Richard Gans for advanced training in vestibular and balance disorders at the American Institute of Balance, in Florida.

Juliane was born and raised in Elmira to Edith (Fitz) and Orvie Shantz. Her mother was raised Lutheran by her parents Rudy and Juliana. Her father was raised by his parents Levi and Melinda with an Old Order Mennonite faith. Juliane’s father grew up in an old house that still stands today off of Lexington Street in Waterloo. With this choice of faith they had no hydro, no TV, no cars (only horse and buggies), no computers, large families and minimal education (grade 8). Both of Juliane’s parents were very supportive when she decided to continue her education at the university level. While most of her Conservative and Markham Mennonite cousins were getting married at 20 years of age and having their own large families Juliane continued studying at University for 10 more years to become a Doctor of Audiology.

20+ years later Juliane continues to fulfill her passion for Audiology. Juliane was recognized in success stories “Top Notch” profiles in excellence; Proud recipient of Who`s who in the Region Award 2017, Diamond Winner for Record Reader Awards for 2015, 2016 and 2017; Platinum Winner for Readers’ Choice Award 2017; Juliane was recognized as a LEGENDARY LANCER and has been honoured in a recent 2017 book launch.

Did you know?

The process of hearing includes both the ear and the brain. The ear changes the sound vibrations into a signal that can be understood by the brain. The ear has three parts - the middle, inner and outer ear - and each part of the ear has a different job.

The vibration of the eardrum moves the three small bones (called ossicles) in the middle ear. Common names for the bones are the hammer, anvil, and stirrup. They are also known as the malleus, incus, and stapes. These bones amplify the vibration and transfer the sound waves to the inner ear (the cochlea). This is where the ear drum resides. Often, hearing loss occurs in the middle ear.
