Sharon Gibki
Clinical Specialist
BSc DipAUD

Hi I’m Sharon. I’ve been involved in Audiology for a few more years than I’d like to admit! To give a clue I completed my Audiology qualifications at Melbourne University headed by Professor Graeme Clarke when he was developing the area of Cochlear Implants Read more

– what a privilege to have been part of the course that was affiliated with his cutting edge research team at Melbourne University – and who would ever have imagined back then, that so much could have been achieved in the years since!

After qualifying, I worked for the Victorian Health Department’s paediatric audiology service during its inaugural years. I moved to Adelaide to work at the WCH – as well, I was involved in additional adult audiology – working evenings for an ENT surgeon.

My first direct involvement with the Cochlear Implant was around 1990 when I spent time with the Adult clinic at FMC learning some very new skills. In 1991, the first children in South Australia were implanted at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital where I was the senior Audiologist.

So, many implants, and many speech processors later I am fortunate to be working as part of the team at All Ears Audiology. I am passionate about people being well informed about their communication options. Whether this be listening and environmental strategies, hearing aids or implantable technology. At AEA I am able to do this with a very competent and caring team.

In my spare time I enjoy cycling an activity shared with my husband Rick. Long leisurely touring, or hard and (not so fast) hill rides, always accompanied by coffee and cake rewards.

I look forward to meeting you at AEA!

Nellie has also spent considerable time working in various hospitals in the UK and more recently at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, and after graduating, worked for 5 years at Australian Hearing in Victoria, working with both children and complex adults. Listening to the needs of the client is Nellie’s interest and priority.

Administration

Bruce Grimm

Bruce Grimm
Business Manager

Following a long career in the SA Government in management Bruce was enticed out of retirement to take up an administration position with CanDo Hearing some 7 years ago. Read more

Bruce thoroughly enjoyed seeing the significant improvements hearing devices can make to clients and their families lives and many discussions around audiology have been held at family events (Bruce is the father of Nicole Eglinton, Director and Principal Audiologist of All Ears Audiology).

With the expansion of Little Ears to All Ears Audiology, Bruce commenced the position of Practice Manager in 2014. It is fair to say his “arm was gently twisted” to join the team. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge in the area of finance and management. Bruce enjoys the challenges associated with running an audiology practice that sees clients from only a few weeks of age up until well into their 90’s. He takes much enjoyment in listening to client’s personal hearing stories and watching their progress made using both hearing aids and implantable hearing technology.

Bruce’s major interests include the enjoyment of family life (with wife Chris, 3 children and now 4 beautiful grandchildren), playing golf and being an active member of the Holdfast Bay Rotary Club.

Senior Administration Officer

Hi, I’m Lory (not short for anything). I joined All Ears as a Senior Receptionist mid- 2016. I have worked in Reception/Administration in Day Surgeries for the past 12 years Read more

and being a “people” person I have always loved the interaction with patients and the long lasting relationships formed with them.  From the moment I walked into the office at All Ears I was aware of their high level of commitment to providing the very best of care to all their clients and I knew I wanted to be a part of that.
On a personal note, I have two huge teenage boys, Jesse and Matthew with my husband Andrew so we spend a lot of time food shopping and cooking 🙂 We love going away on short SA holidays together and exploring our lovely wine regions.

COVID-19 Update

At All Ears & Speech our priority is to ensure the health and well-being of our team and valued clients. We understand the significant impact the Coronavirus is having on everyone and that this is one of the biggest challenges we have all faced. We are in this together and our thoughts and best wishes are with you and your families during this time.

Whilst our practice activities have slowed significantly, our team remains able to assist you with your hearing and speech healthcare. We have reduced our clinical hours, further strengthened our already exemplary hygiene practices and our Speech Pathologists are now primarily providing services online using TeleHealth. 

From the 1st April 2020, we have put the following additional safeguards in place to ensure everyone’s well-being and that our business can continue to look after you and your family.

  • Our administration team will work remotely during the day and attend clinic outside normal clinic hours. This is to minimise contact between clinicians, clients and our admin team. Should at any stage someone be exposed to Coronavirus our risk of transmitting the infection to others is significantly reduced. Kindly leave a message on our answering machine and rest assured we will return your call as soon as possible

  • For NEW CLIENTS – we are here to help and answer any questions you may have regarding your hearing, your child’s hearing or your child’s speech and language development. We can offer initial consults over the phone or via TeleHealth (videoconferencing) to assist. We can then determine whether we need to see you in person urgently or whether we can provide you with services via TeleHealth or other resources to help you in the interim. Again, please leave a message on our answering machine or email us on reception@allearsandspeech.com.au and we will get back to you asap.

  • For clients with URGENT REFERRALS from Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists or other medical practitioners we will see you should you pass our COVID19 questionnaire. As per government regulations we will not see anyone who has: 

    1. travelled interstate or overseas without self-isolating for 14 days

    2. anyone unwell (fever, sore throat, respiratory difficulties)

    3. anyone who has been in contact with someone who has travelled or who may have been exposed to COVID19

We will be offering complimentary online resources and short videos to improve children’s listening, learning, speech and language development during this time. 

For our adult clients we will be providing auditory training resources to make the most of your devices, and lots of information about hearing loss and the various technologies available. Our team are excited to be updating and sharing these resources with you. As always, any feedback, or suggestions on topics that you would like covered will be warmly received.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all our clients for your emails, phone calls and supportive comments during this time. These have been so encouraging and brightened our day. Our clients will continue to remain our priority and we can not thank you enough for choosing us as your service provider. 

On behalf of the team at All Ears & Speech please stay safe and healthy.

Nicole Eglinton

Proud Director of the best team of Audiologists & Speech Pathologist in SA
