A quick summary about Patricia W.

  • It was 14 years between my first implant and the second
  • I love being able to hear waterfalls

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am very blessed to be bilaterally implanted. It was 14 years between receiving my first implant and the second. I know I am one of the lucky ones and enjoy volunteering to pay it forward and help others as they go on their own personal hearing journey.

In my spare time, I enjoy photography and searching for waterfalls. It is a beautiful thing to see and hear the water cascading over the falls or rippling over the rocks at the bottom.

I'm also available to connect on Cochlear Americas - Connect with a Mentor Facebook group:
