A pioneer in education for persons with hearing impairments, she founded the internationally-known Vancouver Oral Centre. This influential program was the first to include a team approach philosophy, which includes the family, teachers and audiologists in the education process. The successful curriculum has been adopted by many other facilities in North America. Generous with her time, she has given advice and lectures on hearing impaired education at universities and oral centres around the world.
