Continuing Education


Amy Trusler

Doctor of Audiology

My roots lie in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, where I previously owned and operated my private hearing care practice. A big focus of my practice was working with First Nations communities, where I implemented a rural audiology care program. I also mentored other hearing care professionals and delivering lectures and presentations in the community. After selling my practice in 2019, I was drawn toward continuing education in hearing healthcare, with a focus on online and on-demand e-learning.
