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!”
