Our Hearing Professionals

Rich Ward

Rich Ward
Owner, Hearing Aid Dispenser

“I was born and raised in Aberdeen and I enjoy playing and officiating basketball, golfing, hunting, & fishing. I graduated from Aberdeen Central in 2006 and Presentation College in 2010. I married my lovely wife, Amber, in July 2011. We have two children, Jamison 3.5 years old and Kingston 1.5 years old. We also have a yellow lab named Raji who enjoys pheasant hunting. The best part of my job is the feeling I get after helping someone find a solution to their hearing difficulties. I cannot think of a more rewarding feeling when someone walks through our doors with a hearing problem and walks out with a smile and solution to their difficulties.”

Troy Podoll
Hearing Aid Dispenser

“Very happily married to my wife, Melanie. Have five children Peyton, Paige, Keely, Hayden, and Eden. Love being very actively involved in their lives, coaching them in every sport I can find time, including the head coach for Leola-Frederick girls varsity basketball team. My free time is most likely spent in pursuit of Walleyes, pheasants, or whitetail deer. I very much enjoy dispensing hearing aids, as it allows me a huge measure of satisfaction in my work. I oftentimes see the hurt that is sometimes involved with hearing loss, and sense the pain that is caused by feelings of being left out. To be a part of the solution to that problem, and help restore a lost portion of someone's life, leads to very rewarding feelings at the end of the day”

Joye Ward
Patient Coordinator

"I bring years of previous experience in the hearing healthcare industry as a personal assistant/patient coordinator. I must admit, I do consider it a pleasure to be on this hearing healthcare team. When I think of being here, I feel as if we are members of a big family. Not only am I able to work with members of my immediate family, but I consider my co-workers part of the family, as well as each guest who walks through our door as extended family. I enjoy welcoming each member of the "family" and trying to help them feel comfortable and valued. While part of my life consists of being at Hearing Health Clinic and meeting all the great people coming in, the rest of my time is spent being the mother of four amazing kids: Rich, Aleya, Lexi, and Bowdrie. I've been married to Al over 30 years, and we've made Aberdeen our home."

Amber Ward
Front Office Executive

"I have been working at Hearing Health Clinics since August 2011. I graduated from Northern State University with a Sociology degree, minor in Human Services, and an emphasis in Gerontology. My husband, Rich and I have two sons, Jamison and Kingston. What makes my job so rewarding is watching patient's emotions change from when they walk in to our clinic, not being able to hear well, then walking out and being able to carry a full conversation. When I'm not working I love being outdoors, with my family/friends and doing arts and crafts."
