Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Owner, Manager and Audiometrist at Whitsunday Hearing
Opening up a whole new world of freedom and confidence for her clients, Sarah uses her skills as an Audiometrist to evaluate hearing and then prescribe the best solution for the individual. Often, this can transform lives.
Originally from Geelong in Victoria, Sarah spent some time travelling after school and enjoyed 12 months living in the UK.
After returning to Australia and exploring a few career options, she decided to start her training as an Audiometrist in Geelong and qualified in 2005.
She then moved to Brisbane in 2006 and gained invaluable experience working for several hearing organisations and in 2014 she took a leap of faith, opening the doors to her own hearing business in Brisbane.
It was almost five years ago that Sarah made the move to the Whitsundays with her family when she bought Whitsunday Hearing.
In July 2021 she opened a new purpose-built clinic at the 121 Business Centre in Cannonvale.
Sarah has one adult child and two grandchildren, plus twin teenage boys with her husband Stephen.
She also has a five-year-old Labradoodle named Blaze.
In her spare time, she loves the outdoors, especially running or walking.
With two young boys in high school, the family’s weekends are often full of children’s sport and trips to Mackay.
In her own time, Sarah likes to pick up a good book to read.
Some of her greatest achievements in life include being the first paid employee for parkrun in Australia, the birth of her three children and of course meeting her husband and moving to sunny Queensland.
“Certainly, my biggest personal challenge is running my hearing business and the family at the same time, as well as looking after myself. It’s challenging but rewarding!” she said.
