Dr. Jennifer Schaal-Sampson became the owner of American Family Hearing in 1995 as a young audiologist with a vision. She took her new practice and upgraded it with advanced diagnostic and hearing aid fitting techniques, and for the past three decades (and counting), she's worked to keep it cutting-edge and on top of the latest advancements in hearing aid technology.
Dr. Schaal-Sampson was drawn to the field of audiology because it combined two of her passions: working with people and working with technology. She likes to joke that deep down she's an engineer who enjoys playing with new gadgets. And she can't imagine herself doing anything else — she feels privileged to get to help people communicate better with their families and the world around them. She loves that her job is about fixing things, whether that's fixing communication between people or fixing hearing aids.
Dr. Schaal-Sampson is a graduate of Rutgers University. She received her master's degree from George Washington University and her Doctorate in Audiology from the University of Florida. Dr. Schaal-Sampson was an adjunct faculty member at the College of New Jersey. She is the president of the New Jersey Hearing Aid Dispensers Examining Committee responsible for testing and licensing hearing aid dispensers in the state. She is a longtime resident of East Brunswick, where she lives with her school teacher husband, two kids, two dogs, and two cats.
