Hearing Specialists

Sharon Harris

Senior Audiologist

Sharon Harris qualified as an audiologist in 2007 and has worked in Kent since 2008. Before qualifying Sharon had a very varied career, always working with and caring for people, including in banking, beauty therapy and travel agency work.

Since qualifying as an audiologist she has gained a wealth of experience with three different hearing aid providers, and she is joining us as a senior audiologist at Spencer Margate, carrying out both private and NHS care for patients.

Sharon said: “I believe in treating everyone I help as an individual, finding out what is important to them with their hearing needs, and then tailoring the best solution I can to help them find a better quality of life.

“Commercial and time pressures in my previous High Street audiology providers meant that it could be difficult to always achieve this, and I am immensely proud and happy to be joining an organisation where the importance of the patients’ needs is firmly placed at the centre of everything I do and the service I provide.”

When not working Sharon enjoys walking, travelling and learning foreign languages.

Rachel Harrison

Ear care technician

Rachel has worked in the care sector for 12 years, gaining qualifications that enabled her to help people promote dignity in care for those who live with dementia.

“Looking for new skills, I studied the anatomy and physiology of the ear, and it was amazing how poor ear health can affect people’s social interacting and hearing loss,” said Rachel.

“If I can play a part in someone’s life to help promote better hearing and give back a little of people’s social abilities then there can be no more job satisfaction than that.”

“Having attended clinics and seen the difference an ear care technician can make, I cannot wait to see what the future holds within the audiology world.”

Rachel lives in Herne Bay with her husband, three children and two dogs. She said: “I love cooking Indian food and photography and I enjoy travelling to India twice a year. The culture, food and people amaze me.”

.... Great service all round from staff who were not only pleasant but who kept informed throughout as to what was required in both cases. Great team, great individuals and a pleasure to work with. Thanks.
