John Christopherson grew up in the Moorhead Minnesota area. After graduation John headed off to the United States Marine Corps where he worked on CH53 helicopters. After leaving the USMC, John headed back home where he found himself working in aviation again- this time in emergency medical helicopters. He also missed the military life so decided to join the North Dakota Air National Guard. Today John and his wife Gina have a family with a total of four young men , one young lady, and five furry family members. John and his family reside on Little Oscar Lake outside Alexandria.
After 31 years working on helicopters, John decided it was time to leave aviation . He decided he wanted to make a difference in people's lives. After almost a year of studying and training in a hands on capacity, John passed his International Hearing Society written test and his State of Minnesota Certification practical exam. He is now a Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist in the state of Minnesota. His certificate number is 2848. He enjoys working with patients who are desiring improvement in their hearing through professional hearing care with a great fitting pair of hearing aids.
What does John love about his new career? Being excited to see people's reactions to their new improved hearing brings him great pleasure. Helping them in hearing their spouses, friends, and grandchildren with properly fitted hearing aids brings him great satisfaction. Seeing excited eyes, the occasional tear, and the changes in connecting generations with conversations makes this new adventure worth while!

Growing up in a household with family members who experienced hearing loss gave Christina a jump start on having an appreciation for good hearing. She learned at an early age to annunciate so that those in her home could easily understand her. One of her children was born prematurely and has a hearing loss as a result. Over the years and throughout other careers she has found that her passion for helping people with hearing was driving her toward a new goal - becoming a hearing instrument specialist. She looks forward to getting to know her patients and helping them with strengthening communication with family and friends. As we say here... she loves connecting generations with conversations.
