He belongs to many professional organizations, including the AAA, the CAA, the ADA and the ASA. In 2016, he retired, or at least he attempted to retire. He recently returned to the profession he so very much loves, hearing aid fitting.
"Being able to help those with hearing loss provides me with a tremendous sense of accomplishment “ says Schade. “ And coming back to where I know so many of my patients, well, that’s an added bonus, a BIG bonus. I’m glad to be back!"
In his spare time he takes care of Ruby, a blind pit bull he adopted 2 years ago. "She’s a great dog, and very popular at the dog park." He also spends a lot of time with the Dana Outrigger Canoe Club, enjoying outrigger canoe races all up and down the coast of California. He likes that it is becoming increasingly popular.
