Kathryn 'Kat' Penno

Founder, Hearing Collective

Kat Penno founded the Hearing Collective to give clients a collective of hearing healthcare services and resources in one location.


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 allow clients and healthcare providers to access health care at home or on the go, where ever they need it.


If you would like to collaborate or you need hearing healthcare content created, shoot Kat an email: Hello@hearingcollective.com.
