Book This Speaker

Sharon Swerdlow

Sharon Wasserman Swerdlow is a mother, daughter, wife, sister, cousin, friend, advocate and investment professional, and like 40 million Americans, she lives with hearing loss.

She has spent the past thirty years navigating the complex world of hearing aids, cochlear implants, and a multitude of assistive listening devices. In the process, Sharon has become somewhat of an expert on care providers, streaming options, apps, open and closed captioning, induction loops, and more. She is incredibly fortunate to have a highly trained service dog, Fergus VII, who alerts her to sounds in the environment.

Sharon is deeply involved in the world of hearing loss. She is the outgoing President of the Hearing Loss Association of America, Los Angeles chapter, and currently serve on its State Board of Directors. She believes we are on the cusp of positive change as the visibility and awareness of the deaf, and general disability community, increases. Sharon is optimistic that changing attitudes towards individuals with disabilities, combined with educating others as to how to best accommodate us, will allow us to live our best lives.
