Professional Profile

I qualified as a Clinical Audiologist from Charing Cross Hospital and UCL in 1991 and worked in the NHS in Hertfordshire and Essex, becoming Head of Service with the Princess Alexandra NHS Trust in 1994 before moving to East & North Herts NHS Trust and Addenbrookes Hospital as Chief Clinical Audiologist . My passion for excellence in patient care has been my primary driving force in my work which encouraged me to start my own private practice, The Hearing Practice. I am delighted and very honoured to have recently been awarded the “Best Audiology Clinic in Hertfordshire 2017” Award and “Best Tinnitus Specialist in Hertfordshire 2017” Award for my private practice. I am also an Ambassador for the British Tinnitus Association and run three free local Tinnitus Support Groups across Hertfordshire.

Personal Profile

I live in a village outside Hitchin with my family and a very cheeky rescue dog. I enjoy the countryside, the gym and cooking and am a keen England and Ireland rugby supporter.
