Drew Milliken, HIS, Hearing Instrument Specialist
Drew grew up in the Bloomington Normal, Illinois area. This is where he attended kindergarten through college. Drew really enjoyed growing up in this area with his family and friends. He has two older brothers, making him the baby of the family. His childhood revolved around success in school, athletics and spending time with family.
Drew’s initial career path was in the Radiology field but after taking several biology and anatomy classes, he became focused on how the ear works. He found himself wanting to learn more about the ear. Little did he know that this would lead him on the path of helping the world hear better. Drew thought a lot about how having a hearing loss could truly affect someone’s quality of life. He also noticed he too had family members suffering from hearing loss. They were withdrawing themselves from social interactions with the family. This is when he realized that he wanted to fully commit to making a difference in the hearing world. Being social is one of the things Drew enjoys most in life. He loves visiting with family and friends which is why he believes others should too.
Drew began his career as a Hearing Instrument Specialist in 2011 and has helped many people in the Galesburg, Kewanee and Peoria Community hear better.
“No hearing loss should go untreated. Our ears help connect us to the world. It will be a brutally awful day when the wonderful sounds and voices around us just disappear.”
