I have been a practicing Audiologist for nearly 20 years. I chose to become an Audiologist because I wanted to study something different and something useful that I can give back to the society. I have worked in diverse environments like hospitals, schools and ENT & Speech and Hearing clinics. I started my career as an Audiologist and Speech Pathologist at Vikram ENT Hospital and Integral Ear Institute in Coimbatore, South India in 1999. I was the youngest Audiologist trained in Cochlear Implants in India then. I visited Melbourne for a Cochlear Implant training Workshop. That is where I fell in love with Australia and the work ethics here that I wanted to come back and work in Australia. But it didn’t happen soon. From India, I moved to Singapore where I worked for the Singapore School for the Deaf as an Educational Audiologist. In 2002, my desire to work in Australia became real. Since coming to Australia, I have worked for various hearing providers in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. I have worked for all the major hearing service providers, National Hearing Care, Western Hearing Services, Australian Hearing and AudioClinic. I have also worked as a Paediatric Audiologist at Princess Margaret Hospital. I have performed lots of home visits and nursing home visits. I perform outreach Audiological services to Indigenous communities out of Carnarvon and Exmouth along with visiting ENT specialists. I have been visiting Bridgetown and Manjimup Hospitals every month for nearly eight years as an Audiologist. I always had the urge to be independent and reach out to people at their convenient times and convenient places. I always put clients’ needs first. I make sure that every single person who walks into my room walks out happy and satisfied with my services. I try and treat everyone like I would treat my family members. At vCARE Hearing, “v” stands for Valuable outstanding service, Value for Money which means Victory for you as a Client. At vCARE Hearing, its always about YOU and not ME. In my busy life with three beautiful daughters, I still enjoy volunteering. I teach Tamil language to children of Tamil Immigrants at the South Tamil School every Sunday. I have become a Justice of the Peace and hope to reach out to more people in the wider community, just not related to hearing. I look forward to helping you if you need my service at vCARE Hearing, where we really care for “YOUR” Hearing. HAPPY LISTENING
