I am a qualified Audiologist and have been working with HearingLife since January 2013, after completing my Master of Clinical Audiology at The University of Melbourne. Prior to this, I also studied a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne with a major in Psychology. I have 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. I became interested in Audiology because my father has lived with hearing loss for many years and I saw firsthand how challenging it is to lead a life with hearing loss. Therefore, I wanted to help make the life of my father and other people living with hearing loss, easier. The most rewarding aspect are when my client’s come back and excitedly tell me about all the new sounds they are hearing and how much their new hearing aids have changed their lives! What a rewarding career!
I have worked as an Audiologist since graduating with a Masters of Clinical Audiology in 2007 and have been part of the HearingLife family since 2014. I have worked in a variety of settings as an Audiologist. Starting at St Vincents hospital in Sydney, working in balance and dizziness diagnostics as well as hearing rehabilitation services. Since moving to Melbourne my focus has been on adult hearing rehabilitation but have also had the opportunity to service remote communities in the Northern Territory and Queensland. From person to person we experience hearing loss differently and I enjoy assisting each individual to meet their own personal goals.
