After working as Trust Account Manager for a prominent commercial property management company in Sydney, I was looking for a career that was more rewarding and allowed me to interact with and help others. In 2008, I joined the hearing industry and obtained my qualifications in Audiometry. I am friendly, down to earth and very passionate about helping people with a hearing impairment stay connected with their loved ones, hobbies and life passions. I have a particular interest in today’s incredible hearing technology and how we can use it to empower our friends with hearing loss to live life to the full. I have recently undergone specialised training with Sydney’s leading Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon, Dr Phillip Chang, in the rehabilitation of BaHa implanted patients and also with regards to Cochlear Implant patients, the focus of which is to be able to understand the implications for bimodal fitting of hearing aids and accessories with Cochlear implanted clients.
I have been working in the hearing industry since 1995. I started my own business so that I could provide a service to clients the way I wanted; which is very personal but very professional. I started out working as an Office Manager for a prominent hearing clinic in Sydney and comlpeted the Audiometry Course through TAFE. With excellent Audiologists as my colleagues and teachers, I have developed my skills and have carried on in a clinical role expanding my knowledge every year. I am very passionate about helping people to hear and providing a service that is personal. Sound is so wonderful and hearing is one of our very valuable senses. I cannot image not being able to hear the birds early every morning as I sit on the verandah with my dogs snoring softly beside me. The day slowly comes alive; I can hear the ocean softly “rumbling” in the distance, the soft swish of the breeze, traffic in the distance reminds me I am not the only one up early preparing for the day of work ahead. These sounds are so precious to me and sooth me – they are my morning sounds!
