Meet Andrea Lynn Sloan

We're definitely lucky to work in an industry with such an interesteing cast of characters, and Andrea Lynn Sloan is no exception.  I first met Andrea back in 2007 at a launch event when somone suggested that she and I shared a passion for endurance events.  Little did I know that I was about to have my socks blown off by her very nonchalant description of the types of events that she had participated in.  Fast forward about a year and I bumped into Andrea just after she had returned from one of the most ultra, of ultra-marathons across the Desert in Morocco.  Yes, Ladies and Gents, Andrea is a bonafied ULTRA-Marathoner and we're thrilled to have her as part of the Phonak/CanHEAR Uganda running team.....
