Meet the Staff from Wards Corner and Great Neck!
Josh Grohler: Beltone Runs in the FamilyHello, my name is Josh Grohler, I am the Board Certified Licensed Hearing Instrument Specialist in our Wards Corner and Great Neck offices. I was born in Toledo, Ohio, and my family moved to Virginia when I was in middle school. Even though I have been in Virginia most of my life, I am still a die-hard Ohio sports fan. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University and immediately started my adventure with Beltone in May of 2011. I am fourth generation Beltone, my great grandparents and grandparents both worked with Beltone Hearing Aids. Now my mother, Bari, is the owner of Beltone Southside. Most of my family works here at Beltone, so when you come see me, you can count on being treated like a member of my family. My favorite part of my job is putting a set of hearing instruments on a patient for the first time. It is always such a moment of joy when a person realizes how much they have been missing out on and how amplification can completely change their life. When I am not helping people hear, I enjoy playing soccer with my brother, fishing, and working on my saltwater fish tanks trying to replicate a piece of the ocean in my own home. If you need help hearing and you live in Norfolk or near the beach, please give my office a call! I would love to show you the difference hearing aids can make in your life!
Mari Lynn Ledford: Hearing Aid Specialist and World TravelerHello! My name is Mari Lynn Ledford. I was born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and moved to Toledo, Ohio, to study at The University of Toledo after graduating high school. In 1990, I began my career in the hearing aid industry and relocated to Michigan in 1992 after becoming a licensed hearing aid specialist. I opened my first office in November of 1992 in Sterling Heights Michigan. In 2009, I became part of the Beltone family in Michigan, opening 3 Beltone offices in Petoskey, Traverse City and Cadillac Michigan. I worked with Beltone from 2009 until 2013. In September of 2017, I decided to make a life change and sold my office in the Detroit area and moved to Virginia Beach to be closer to family and continue my passion of promoting better hearing with Beltone. I have grown to love this area and enjoy walking the boardwalk for exercise. I have been on mission trips to Peru helping to fit children and adults with hearing aids that could not afford them. I am so blessed to work at a profession where I see the smiles on our customer’s faces daily as I help them make their way back into the world of better hearing. I’ve hiked the Inca trails at Machu Picchu, portions of the Appalachian Trail and the North Country Trail. I love to ski and play tennis. Fishing in the Florida Keys, Bahamas and Martha’s Vineyard are also some of my favorite past times. You can visit me any time at our Norfolk and Great Neck locations where I work alongside Josh Grohler.
April Fisher: Beltone is Like Home!Hey there! My name is April Fisher. I was born and raised right here in Wards Corner. I graduated from Granby High School in 2009, GO COMETS!! I have worked at numerous offices; attorney’s offices, distribution offices and even fast food restaurants, and none compare to my experience here. I have been a part of the Beltone family for a year now. They have been very welcoming and are like my 2nd family. My favorite part about this office is their loyalty and dedication to their patients. I’ve seen all our specialists provide excellent care and service both in and out of the office and I am so blessed to call myself a Beltone family member. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and our cats, volunteering at my church, and knitting.
