Vice President & current Board Ally for EDIA

I am a registered Clinical Scientist with 28 years’ experience of working in Audiology in the NHS. My main work role is now as Senior Audiology Policy Advisor for the National Deaf Children’s Society, although I do still work as a Lead Clinical Scientist in Hearing Services at Sheffield Children’s Hospital on a part-time basis.

Clinically, my passion has been on providing an excellent, continually improving service for children and young people with hearing loss, with a special interest in complex paediatric assessment, including vestibular assessment. I am in the last stretch of the Higher Specialist Scientific Training (Professional Doctorate in Clinical Science).

Being on the BAA Board allows me to get involved with shaping the future of Audiology. I get to work with other passionate, “big-picture” professionals- the BAA is constantly engaging with appropriate stakeholders on a national level. I would encourage as many of the Audiology community to become members of the BAA as possible to give us an even larger voice. And as the board lead for Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility, I am a passionate that BAA, its board and committees are fair and fully representative of all BAA members.
