Heidi strongly believes in a holistic approach, acknowledging that hearing and communication difficulties do not stand alone, but have significant impact on relationships, mood, health, academic and work advancement, as well as emotional and social well-being.

Heidi has always loved communication and her early interest in this field started with speech and drama when she won the Vincent Primary School trophy for Public Speaking at the age of 7 years.  She has always had an interest in medicine and one way for her to combine her interests was to complete a degree in Speech Therapy and Audiology at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Heidi then spent the next 5 years working as both a speech-language therapist and audiologist before spending 5 years working as a speech-language therapist in the Netherlands, where she ran her own practice.

On her return to South Africa, Heidi spent a few years raising her two sons and acquiring further experience in the field of Audiology. It was during this time that her interest in Auditory Processing started. She developed a special interest in this area and has travelled extensively to international conferences to develop her knowledge and expertise in this area, especially on how it pertains to communication and hearing loss in all ages.

Heidi has obtained her M.A. Audiology focusing on auditory processing and has recently presented at the American Speech-language Hearing Association in New Orleans.
