Co-owner and clinical audiologist Trevor Menchenton joined Audiocorp in the spring of 2008 following his work at a private practice outside of Halifax for nearly 3 years. He was born and raised in Millertown, a small central Newfoundland community with a population of less than 100. He left Millertown and went on to Dalhousie University where he graduated with an Honours Degree in Neuroscience in 2002.
Completed His Audiology Degree at Dalhousie University
Trevor decided to take a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Korea, where he taught English as a second language class. He returned to Canada 3 years later to pursue higher education. He intended to enroll in medical school but a personal injury led to a change of heart. Trevor then embarked on a career in health care where he would have a close, personal connection with patients. He went back to Dalhousie University to enroll in the Master of Science Audiology program. Over the next 3 years, he completed his degree and also completed a Master’s thesis on age-related hearing loss. His research was published in the scientific journal, Neurobiology of Aging, in July, 2010.
Received National Acclaim in 2009
Since he began practicing audiology, Trevor has received many accolades. He received the Jean Kienapple Award for clinical excellence from the Canadian Academy of Audiology in 2009. This national award was presented based on testimonials from Trevor’s patients in Fredericton and Saint John. In the same year, he was invited to become a fellow of the IDA Institute in Denmark in 2009 and participated in discussions designed to improve patient care. He has presented at 2 major national conferences: in 2008 at the annual CAA conference and in 2009 at the annual Canadian Hard of Hearing Association conference. Trevor shows his dedication to audiology in various ways, including the writing of articles relevant to hearing in the quarterly “Choices After 50” publication distributed in New Brunswick. He has earned a reputation for excellence in audiology on a provincial and national level.

Co-owner and clinical audiologist, Dr. Jennifer Menchenton began working at Audiocorp in 2009 and has loved every minute. She grew up in Grand Bank, Newfoundland, a small town of approximately 2500 people. After leaving Grand Bank to pursue her education, Jennifer received a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics which was followed by a Master of Arts in Linguistics degree in which she wrote a thesis on how we learn language. While studying the science of sound in her linguistics classes, Jennifer began thinking about a career in audiology.
Personal Experience Led to a Desire to Help Others
Jennifer had hearing difficulties herself as a child and recalls one particular incident when she was in class, working on a project, when suddenly every student in class turned and shouted her name. The teacher had been calling her name for a few minutes, but she didn’t hear a word. This experience led to a long series of trips to see her audiologist, many ear infections, hearing tests and surgeries. Jennifer later decided on a career in audiology to provide people with the same care and attention she received as a child. This decision led her to Dalhousie University where she received her Master of Science in Audiology degree in 2009. Jennifer completed her doctorate degree in Audiology (AuD) from the University of Florida in 2014.
Jennifer is a member of the following professional organizations:
– serves on the Membership Committee
She also writes articles on hearing health and hearing aid use for the New Brunswick quarterly print “Choices After 50”.
Jennifer believes that hearing is vital to our everyday lives, communication and relationships. To quote Helen Keller’s sentiment, “Blindness separates us from things, but deafness separates us from people.” She believes successful hearing and communication is available with the advances in today’s hearing aid technology.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys cooking, dancing and travelling. In July of 2012, Jennifer and Trevor were married in their home province of Newfoundland. They welcomed a baby boy named Alec in June of 2013.

Katrina officially began working at Audiocorp in the Spring of 2017, after a Summer of volunteering and a work placement within the clinic. Born and raised in Fredericton, she was excited to return to her home town and work within the community. She graduated from Dalhousie University in 2017 with a Master’s degree in Audiology, and previously completed her Bachelor’s in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of New Brunswick.
A career in Audiology was not what Katrina had originally planned, but after several years of working in a Chemistry lab, she knew that she needed a career where she could interact with people and make a difference in their lives. Audiology gave her the ability to combine her love of science and technology with her passion for connecting with the people around her.
Katrina believes in building and maintaining connections between individuals, and feels that hearing is a large part of that connection. She strives to help her patients and their loved ones understand hearing loss and provide them with the tools to work through their hearing difficulties to stay in tune with the world around them.
