Jan Gilden, M.A., CCC-A

Jan Gilden,

Clinical Service Manager / Audiologist

Jan, a proud University of Texas Longhorn, has a Bachelor of Science in speech communication and a Master of Arts in Audiology. Originally intending to become a speech pathologist, in her undergraduate program, Jan took her first audiology class and was hooked! She has worked at Houston Ear Research Foundation (now Cochlear Hearing Center) since 1986; first as a clinical audiologist, then as executive director since 1994.

Jan’s passion and experience in Cochlear implants is clear in her interactions with patients and colleagues. “I am committed to making sure that every candidate, potential candidate and recipient receives the kind of care I would want for me or my family”

Sherri Taxman, M.S., CCC-A

Sherri Taxman,


Sherri has been an audiologist since 1979; she worked in two area hospitals and a local ENT practice before joining the Houston Ear Research Foundation (now Cochlear Hearing Center). Cochlear implants have been her area of focus for the last 27 years. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Science in Audiology from Baylor College of Medicine.

Sherri strives to meet her patients’ needs every day to help them communicate effectively. “I find it very gratifying to assist my patients in their progress with their cochlear implants, and see the transformative effect the CI can have on their life and the lives of their family members!”

Megan Marsh, Au.D., CCC-A

Megan Marsh,


Megan is the newest addition to our Cochlear Hearing Center Houston Team – she joined us in November 2018. While pursuing her degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Texas State University, she discovered that she loved the science behind how ears work and the technology that helps people to hear better, and thus wanted to become an audiologist. After college, she began her pursuit of a Doctorate of Audiology from the University of Oklahoma. Megan began her professional career at Hearts for Hearing in Oklahoma City followed by The Center for Hearing and Speech here in Houston.

Megan relishes in seeing how she can help to change her patients’ lives. “After a patient receives a cochlear implant, I can see the impact that hearing their loved ones and friends makes on their lives. It is amazing how a little device can change a person’s whole world.”
