Kathryn 'Kat' Penno
Founder, Hearing Collective
Kat Penno founded the Hearing Collective to give clients a collective of hearing healthcare services in one location. Hearing Collective offers clients the freedom to access personalised hearing health care solutions, at their convenience in their comfort zones, online. Kat strives to give clients continued health care services, when ever and where ever they may need it, without having to wait to see an audiologist in a traditional clinic. Virtual or online appointments have proven to be comfortable, engaging and easy to access.
Additionally Kat wanted to ensure quality, easy to read content and awareness was produced about audiological services, communication, hearing loss, balance and hearing technologies. Kat believes sharing evidenced based knowledge in a timely and easy to read/use manner is crucial for knowledge translation and understanding, to everyone.
Kat is interested in collaborative health care services, online healthcare service deliveries, and integrative smart technologies that allows clients to access health care at home or on the go. If you would like to collaborate, shoot Kat an email: Hello@hearingcollective.com.
