About Nikki Magrath

Nikki has been working with Aston Hearing Services for over 18 months, having joined the marketing team back in October 2016. Nikki’s proudest moments so far have included seeing the Hear Today community project become a regular monthly social hub for people with worries about their hearing, and the events that have grown from that, the highlight being the Deaf Tennis event in August 2017. A great personal achievement for Nikki was when she passed level two in BSL, after becoming deaf through Sudden Hearing Loss. When Nikki is not at work she enjoys teaching cookery to teenagers for the Duke of Edinburgh Award and to prepare them for university life. Nikki loves playing tennis regularly and walking her Labrador, Loki.
