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!

Bruce Grimm – 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.
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 5 beautiful grandchildren), playing golf and being an active member of the Holdfast Bay Rotary Club
