Although in my heart I am an audiologist with a burning passion for helping people with hearing loss, The Hearing Care Centre forces me to be a businesswoman too; I’m Managing Director and although that doesn’t mean I have to make every decision, I do have a team of 25 people and 25 out-reach clinics to worry about! So, much of my time is spent planning our future, discussing these plans with work colleagues, encouraging them, praising their success and training. I love training people and seeing their potential unfold into a successful career pathway. I also see patients several days a week – this is the part I love! Chatting to people, finding out their hearing problems and prescribing the right solution to help them enjoy their lives to the full once more.
