Living With Hearing Loss is a blog and online community for people living with hearing loss. Founder Shari Eberts has an adult-onset genetic hearing loss and hopes that by sharing her story, she will help others to live more comfortably with their own hearing issues.
About Shari Eberts
Shari first noticed her hearing loss in her mid to late twenties. It has gotten progressively worse since then and she now wears hearing aids every day to hear better. She is lucky to have only mild tinnitus so far. Shari doesn’t want her hearing loss to define her, but she finds that being open about it can help relieve the pressure of always having to hear everything perfectly. She hopes this blog will serve as an outlet for her experiences as well as a community for those dealing with similar issues.
Passionate Advocate, Author & Speaker
Shari is a passionate hearing health advocate and writes and speaks frequently on hearing loss topics on this blog and elsewhere. Her E-book, Person-centered Care from the Patient’s Perspective, shares valuable insights that audiologists can use to make their practices more person-centered.
Shari’s first full-length book about hearing loss (co-authored with Gael Hannan) will be published in May 2022. Join her email list to receive updates on the book.
