Gemma has more than ten years’ experience of working as an audiologist in the NHS with both adults and children and has been with the charity for more than four years, supporting us with specialist knowledge about audiology services, hearing loss and deafness.
Gemma also has a passion for improving ear and hearing health in the developing world. In 2015, she took a sabbatical and volunteered for six months in Zambia, supporting the only audiologist within the country to develop and teach a new one year audiology diploma course to students from across Africa. She is currently working one day per week as a consultant audiologist to the charity Sound Seekers, which is dedicated to helping people with hearing loss in Africa. She also chairs a Global Outreach Specialist Interest Group which has been established by the British Society of Audiology (BSA).
