Meet Belinda Porte Garcia

Earbus Foundation of Western Australia

Belinda Porte Garcia.png

Hi my name is Belinda Porte Garcia. Originally a musician by trade I came across Audiology purely by chance.  Whilst visiting family at St John of God Mt Lawley hospital after the birth of their first child I saw bub have her newborn hearing screen and thought, I could do that! Three years on I am excited to be graduating from UWA as an Audiologist. A practicuum placement to Punmu sparked my interest in working with at-risk children and in remote communities. I was then lucky enough to be offered a role at Earbus. As the provider of newborn hearing screening at Mt Lawley Hospital, Earbus Foundation is the reason I wanted to become an Audiologist and I feel very honoured to be working as part of the Earbus team.

New Earbus Programs to the Kimberley and the SW of the state are underway in both regions with clinical visits starting in both regions in April 2018.

The Kimberley Earbus Program has been made possible by a WA State Government budget allocation under the Royalties for Regions program. Earbus Foundation will have resident staff based in Kununurra with the team providing services across the East Kimberley and into the east Fitzroy Valley.

The SW Earbus Program, based out of Bunbury, is funded by charitable and philanthropic contributions. Ian Potter Foundation is the anchor sponsor along with substantial funding from Stan Perron Charitable Trust and Alcoa . The PEACH Trust Fund (Alcoa employees) funded essential equipment with a generous grant of almost $11,000. Aurizon Community Giving Fund has also provided financial assistance for medical services in areas not covered by existing providers.

Earbus Foundation initially expects around 2000 Aboriginal children will benefit directly from the roll-out of the two new programs.

Taliesha Peckham, Earbus Nurse

Hi my name is Taliesha Peckham, I’m from Darwin in the Northern Territory. I ventured over to Western Australia in 2013 where I began boarding school and successfully finished year 12. After being here for 2 years I discovered that I enjoyed living in Perth and decided to pursue my dream of becoming a Nurse. That led me to Marr Mooditj Training where I successfully completed a Diploma of Enrolled Nursing. Throughout my nursing studies I worked at an Aged Care facility and now, following graduation, I am honoured to be a part of the Earbus team. I will be continuing on with my studies at Edith Cowan University – I hope to qualify as a Registered Nurse - while working with Earbus Foundation.
