I completed my Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Psychology in 1998. During my psychology degree, I learnt about and became interested in Audiology. I completed my Masters of Audiology in 2000 and went to work for one of the largest audiological service providers in Queensland. My role as an Audiologist included working with children and adults in a diagnostic and rehabilitative role. In 2002, I became manager of one of the clinics until mid 2005. I then worked for a private hearing aid provider fitting hearing aids to both private and Australian government clients.
I am a member of the Audiology Australia, vice president of the Queensland branch of Audiology Australia and hold a Certificate of Clinical Practice. I am also a member of the Independent Audiology of Australia.
I have a very real understanding of hearing loss and how it affects one’s life, as hearing loss runs in my family. My grandfather and father have otosclerosis, which is a hereditary condition affecting one of the bones of the middle ear.
My commitment to you as your Audiologist is to provide you with the highest quality of service in a caring, professional manner. It gives me great satisfaction to hear from my clients how hearing aids have improved their quality of life, confidence and independence.
