I feel lucky to be an Audologist and love the combination of working with people and technology. I am always looking for ways to improve, learn and grow within my career, and provide better Audiological care for my patients.
I am an experienced Audiologist with a speciality in adult rehabilitation and hearing technology. Throughout my career I have worked in many different settings including clinical audiology, as a technical specialist and sales manager for three different hearing aid companies, in management for a large clinical audiology network and in a public hospital setting.
I gained my Master’s degree in Audiology from the University of Massachusetts in 1995 and completed my AuD, Doctor of Audiology, in 2015. I am a current member of the New Zealand Audiological Society with a Certificate of Clinical Competence, and I am also a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology. I am qualified to do all New Zealand third party funding work such as ACC, War Pensions and AccessAble Hearing Aid Subsidy.
I joined A1 Hearing in 2015 and helped them set up a new clinic in Northcross on Auckland’s North Shore. I work part time at the Northcross clinic and part time at the Papatoetoe clinic.
I love being back in a clinical role and working for a small family business. We work hard to keep our costs down so we can offer good quality, well priced hearing aids along with top notch service and care. We are passionate about helping people hear well and feel more people could benefit from the today’s hearing aid technology solutions if pricing is more affordable. We pride ourselves on being friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
