Since graduating Jack has focused his clinical work on paediatric diagnostic assessments, and adult rehabilitation (assessments and management using hearing aids and other listening devices). He also has a special interest in hearing protection for musicians. Jack places his client’s at the centre of all he does and takes great pride in ensuring they meet their listening goals. Jack is experienced with finding solutions to technical problems and is always first on call when it comes to IT trouble around the office!

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 – 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 Roberts completed her Master’s degree in Audiology in 2002 at Flinders University. Prior to this, she completed her Bachelor of Health Sciences in 2000.

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.
Nellie maintains her Certificate of Clinical Practice by actively participating in Audiology Australia’s continuing professional development program.

Stephanie primarily sees school-aged children and their families for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of speech, language and literacy difficulties. Stephanie has completed her PhD on children who have reading and/or auditory processing difficulties. Stephanie also has a special interest in accent modification for non-native English speakers.
Stephanie initially worked as a speech pathologist for the Department of Education and Children’s Services in Port Pirie and Adelaide for 7 years, during which she was the speech - language pathologist for the Language Support Class for 3 years. Stephanie developed the screening tool known as the Screen of Phonological Awareness (SPA). The SPA is now widely used in schools around Australia to detect children at risk of literacy failure.
Stephanie commenced private practice in 1995. She worked as a speech pathologist at Westminster School and was co-president of the SA Branch of Speech Pathology Australia in 2004. She then relocated to Brisbane for 4 years, working in Catholic schools, in private practice and serving on the management committee of SPELD-QLD while studying for her PhD. She returned to Adelaide in January 2009 and submitted her PhD in March 2010. Her PhD topic focused on reading development in students with diagnosed auditory processing disorder (APD). Stephanie has continued to work in private practice since that time and describes herself as a ‘progress-junkie’, finding nothing so satisfying as facilitating successful outcomes for her clients.
Meg completed her Bachelor of Speech Pathology in 2018, following diverse clinical placement experiences. She has experience working with children and adults towards a wide variety of communication goals, including speech, language, fluency and literacy.

Outside her study, Meg has volunteered as a Cub Scout leader, where she developed her passion for working with children. She is also experienced in NDIS management, having worked as an administration assistant prior to graduating.
She is committed to communication access for all, particularly within the field of hearing loss. Because of this, she has completed her Certificate III in Auslan and intends to keep learning in 2019. In her spare time, she enjoys making music with her band, playing hockey, and catching up with friends.

Following a long career in the SA Government in management Bruce was enticed out of retirement to take up an administrative position with Can:Do Hearing some 7 years ago.
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 5 beautiful grandchildren), playing golf and being an active member of the Holdfast Bay Rotary Club.
Hi, I’m Laura! I look forward to greeting you when you come to see us at All Ears Audiology. I love meeting new people (and don’t mind the odd chat too)!
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 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.
