Obtained her degree as a Speech Therapist and Audiologist in Europe where she worked for many years in the hearing industry and specifically trained as an audiologist and worked with ENT’s in the fitting of cochlear implants.
Siemens Hearing Instruments invited her to come and live in Australia to train audiologists in the technology and fitting of hearing aids.
After several years of intensive travelling and presenting seminars in Australia, she decided to settle in Brisbane and re-focus again on the clinical side of her work. Falls of Sound in Indooroopilly has been operating very successfully and Katia and her family moved to the Sunshine Coast where she opened Falls of Sound Maroochydore.
Katia’s priority in the business is to make sure that every client receives an outstanding experience in their “journey to better hearing”. There for she is constantly training herself in the latest technology of all brands. She appreciates client’s feedback so further comparison between products can be analysed.

Starting out as a beauty stylist Kyra’s career in that industry is nothing short of impressive. Not only did she work on people’s appearance, her supportive nature created a self belief with her clients she is very proud of.
You’ll find Kyra to be a calm, very curious team player. Always willing to explore all options to achieve the very best result. Completing a Community Service Certificate shows her commitment to help and support.

Having worked in the hearing industry for over three years, I am absolutely delighted to join the team at Falls of Sound. Very excited to be working with Katia our lovely boss and super hearing specialist.
During my long history of customer service roles I’ve acquired the skills and knowing the value of going the extra miles to ensure customers have the best experience. The hearing industry is full of heart and I enjoy seeing lives changed and our customers achieving better hearing. Being independent Falls of Sound has a large range of hearing devices brands to offer and keeps my work days exciting and fresh.
Two grown children, a little granddaughter who is 2 and a little sister or brother on their way keep me very occupied. My hubby is a great handyman and can build just about anything. We have 6 lovely big black fluffy legged chickens, just adorable. The chickens free range and look forward to me coming home and feeding them.
Looking forward to your visit and would love to meet you!!
