Born and raised in Lloydminster, Terry has worked in the hearing healthcare field since the early 2000s. He started his professional hearing healthcare career in 2007 after graduating from MacEwan University’s Hearing Aid Practitioner program. After practicing for two years as a Registered Hearing Aid Practitioner at his parent’s hearing healthcare practice (Lloydminster Hearing Centre) he decided to further his education by pursuing his Masters Degree in Audiology, aspiring to provide competent and comprehensive hearing healthcare to his clients and his community. In Summer 2016, Terry and his mother Kim Sokalofsky opened Lloydminster’s first Audiology practice, Acoustic Audiology. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in Psychology with Great Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan in 2012 and his Masters of Science degree (M.Sc.) in Audiology and Speech Sciences from the University of British Columbia in 2015. In October 2015 he was presented with the Canadian Academy of Audiology Student Award, which is given to an outstanding audiology student in Canada for academic or clinical excellence, outstanding research, and community service. Terry is Lloydminster’s first full-time Clinical Audiologist and he strives to provide his community with the highest standard of hearing healthcare. Terry is an avid musician, having played in numerous bands throughout his life. In his free time he enjoys playing guitar, piano, and singing. He also enjoys woodworking, playing baseball, snowboarding, stand-up jetskiing, and spending time outdoors with his wife Kylie, daughter Emery, and dog Marlow.
