My name is Mark Gordon, and I began working with Hearing Life in June 2016. I have worked as an Audiometrist since 2010, after a friend working in the field, introduced me because of my interest in health. Enabling people to improved their quality of life through better hearing is the most rewarding and sometimes challenging part of the role. I have had the pleasure of seeing such positive change many times over.
Rebecca McKelvie is an Audiologist and has been working with HearingLife since January 2013, after completing her Master of Clinical Audiology at The University of Melbourne. Prior to that, she also studied a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne with a major in psychology. She has worked in a number of areas of audiology including diagnostic assessment, adult audiological assessment, adult aural rehabilitation, hearing device fitting, tinnitus assessment and management and WorkCover testing. Rebecca became interested in Audiology because her father has lived with hearing loss for many years and she saw firsthand how challenging it is to lead a life with hearing loss. Therefore, she wanted to help make the life of her father and other people living with hearing loss easier. The most rewarding aspect of her career are when clients come back and excitedly tell her about all the new sounds they are hearing and how much their new hearing aids have changed their lives! What a rewarding career!
