Hello, I'm Katherine Rybak. 

Hard of hearing since birth, I founded Hearing Out Loud in 2021. Hearing Out Loud’s mission is to move people forward in their lives as strong self-advocates who celebrate their identity, embrace technology and confidently implement strategies to make meaningful connections within their community. I am also a recently retired Teacher for the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing, have earned a master's degree in education and am a National Board Certified Teacher.
