After more than 15 years of experience as an audiologist (MAud), Clare is still passionate about the work she does daily. With a wide range of rehabilitative skills, specialising in Complex client groups (eg. Paediatric, the profoundly deaf, cochlear implantees) she has a special interest in people living with dementia. After gaining an Associate Degree in Dementia Care through the University of Tasmania Wicking Centre, Clare is working towards improving communication outcomes for people living with dementia by developing better audiological care practices. One area of this is raising the awareness of the benefits of audiology care in health care prevention strategies and improving quality of life. Clare is also funnelling her passion for Audiology into her position as Chairperson for Tasmanian Chapter of Audiology Australia. Furthermore, developing hearing training programs, attending community awareness activities, participating in the Tasmanian Allied Health Advisory Group, and community education speaking engagements have become a regular part of her work in recent years.
