Joshua Heldt

HID/Owner

Josh began working in the grocery business with his Dad and Grandfather at a young age.  As an adult he proudly served his country and completed one deployment during Operation Iraqi Freedom.  In 2018 Josh decided he was ready for a change and began working for Brian Hillesland at Preferred Hearing Aid Center and Jefferson Hearing Aid Center.  He quickly grew to love the industry and purchased the business from Hillesland in 2023.  Josh enjoys continuing to work with Brian and gaining knowledge from Hillesland’s 30 plus years of experience.  The aspect of the business Josh enjoys the most is building relationships with patients and helping them choose the best possible options for their hearing needs.

When not in the office Josh can most likely be found at a BMX track with his three youngest children or on the golf course with friends.

Brian Hillesland, BC-HIS

Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences

Brian started working in the hearing industry in 1986. He received his BS degree in Business Administration from Moorhead State University in 1980. In 1997, Brian received his board certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences. He is a member of MHHP (MN Hearing Healthcare Providers) and is also a member of IHS (International Hearing Society).

Brian enjoys seeing people’s expressions when they are able to improve their communication with their family. When Brian isn’t in the office you will find him enjoying a round of golf or playing racquet ball with friends.

Patti Hillesland

Office Manager

Patti grew up in the Wadena area, graduating from Wadena High School in 1979, and has been with Jefferson Hearing Aid since 2013 as the Office Manager.
She and Brian have been married since 1983 and have 2 adult sons.

Patti says, “I don’t know all the technical things about hearing aids but I love working with the people.”

It's great to have a hearing aid specialist near home. Brian is great to work with.

I just got my new hearing aids from Brian at Jefferson Hearing Aid. My first pair were 8 years old and still working fine but needed an upgrade in technology. I would recommend anyone with any hearing loss to visit one of their offices. Great Service and very nice people
