1984 Accepted the position of Audiologist at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, later to become Audiologist in Charge.
1988 as Director I set up Medical Audiology Services in West Perth to offer hearing & balance investigation and aural rehabilitation services in a private setting.

Area of Expertise:

The Southampton qualification was broadly based around the clinical investigation of hearing and balance disorders. This promoted my acceptance of clinical positions in hospitals in New Zealand; Melbourne and then at Sir Charles Gairdner.

In that time, there have been many advances in the realm of auditory investigations from other sources such as PET (positron emission tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). To counter that, the range and complexity of hearing aids and their fitting has increased significantly.

I have the benefits of a background in diagnostics and a desire to try and keep up to date with the current developments in hearing aid technology so that I can offer the best counsel to patients needing answers to their hearing problems.
