About Kate Collet-Fenson

Originally Kate had no intention of joining her mother’s business; it was only when her husband, Duncan, started to work for the company that she became more personally involved. Once this interest was ignited she worked hard to help grow Aston Hearing Services and is responsible for managing the office on a day-to-day basis.

IHP is a larger network of hearing professionals whose aim is to promote hearing health awareness to the general public.
