This gorgeous lady is Michele who has not one, but two cochlear implants. She has had hers for years now and is an expert cochlear user. Like me, Michele lost her hearing suddenly but she didn't let it slow her down. She still works full time as a business coach, plays tennis, is a mum and wife, and a very busy socialite! Michele supported me when I first went deaf and took the time to talk to me about being implanted. It really made a difference talking to someone who had already been there and done that even though I had to lip-read her. Turns out she has an accent, didn't pick that up lip-reading!!!
