Our Audiologist – Emma van Wanrooy
Emma van Wanrooy has 19 years of experience working across a broad range of areas in Audiology. She has a Masters of Audiology from Macquarie University. Emma has worked with some of Australia’s largest organisations including Australian Hearing, and the Sydney Cochlear Implant Centre where she has worked alongside some of the leaders in this field. She has also worked with the internationally renowned National Acoustic Laboratories where she was involved in research into hearing aid fitting, bimodal hearing (cochlear implant and hearing aid worn together), and speech and language outcomes for children with hearing loss.
Emma has specialised in hearing assessment and habilitation for children and adults, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. Emma has always enjoyed exploring new frontiers in Audiology. Key areas of expertise for Emma are devices for single sided deafness (unilateral hearing loss) and providing services to clients remotely (tele audiology). She has presented papers workshops at national and international conferences on topics including tele audiology (remote delivery of services via telemedicine) and bimodal fitting.
As a result of her experience, Emma is a strong believer in the benefits of a high level of after care service for clients with hearing loss. She prides herself on keeping up to date on the latest advances in technology, and independently evaluating the advertised benefits of the latest devices.
Emma lives locally in Bilgola, and is pleased to be able to use her skills to improve the quality of life of members of her local Pittwater community.
