Eric W. Nilsson, BC-HIS
Nationally Board-Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist
To be perfectly honest, when I was growing up, I was dead set on becoming a professional golfer. Hearing was the family business, but I saw myself as more of an Arnold Palmer. Aside from helping out occasionally in the office, I never really envisioned myself in this position. Of course, serendipity knew better than I did. Although I went off to college on a golf scholarship, I ended up graduating with a wife, a little boy, and an internship with my dad at Nilsson Hearing.
When my wife and I found out we were having twins a little later, I wanted to continue my internship with my dad and have the ability to stay with my growing family every day. My father had been an amazing role model for me. He was always there for us and came to every school event or sports game. In a nutshell, he supported every dream I had, and I knew I wanted to be that kind of father for my son and our two new arrivals. Therefore, I left golf behind, started work to become a Hearing Instrument Specialist, and never looked back.
The family business turned out to be even more enjoyable and fun than I had thought! Years later, I still look forward to each day on the job. After all, I get to meet people from all walks of life, hear their stories, and help them improve their lives. Family is so important to me (and working in a family business has its advantages there), so when I can help someone reconnect with their own family and experience a happier, fuller life, there really isn’t a more rewarding feeling out there.
We have people come in who have been isolated from their friends and family for years. Some have had bad experiences, and others don’t even realize how isolated they are until we open the door for them. Restoring and improving hearing can have a total 180-degree effect on their lives. I’ve had some clients cry tears of joy in the office because they are so happy to once again feel that connection with their world. It’s an incredibly fulfilling feeling.
Of course, there are always some challenges along the way. We try so hard here, so on those rare occasions when we’re not able to quite reach a patient’s hearing goals and give them overall completeness, it can be a hard pill to swallow. There are only so many things we can do to help patients get around the barriers, but we will do whatever we can (and then some) to try and help.
This inspires us to keep on growing. Our goal is to reach as many people looking for help as possible, and to help them reach the happiness they’ve been searching for. All of that passion for excellence comes along with the best service possible. Without that, growth wouldn’t be worth it.
In and out of the clinic, I get to spend time with my amazing family. My wife and I met in college and were inseparable right from the first date. After ten years of marriage, we have four awesome little boys who love to explore the world with us. We all like to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. Fishing, camping, hiking – you name it, we’re doing it! And when it comes to sports, we’re all game. Right now, soccer is the family favorite, although with basketball season picking up, soccer might have some competition. So far, we haven’t had the opportunity to really get them excited about golf, but I think I could swing them my way!
Looking back, I can’t help but think that while this might not have been the goal I’d been working towards when I first set out, it’s the career I was meant to pursue. Between the family I’m able to spend each day with, and the families we’re able to help, I know I’m on the right course.

Hearing Instrument Specialist
My journey with Intermountain Audiology began when our hearing instrument specialist asked me if I wanted to come work here as a patient care coordinator. The story doesn’t really get any simpler than that! It certainly lends credence to the idea that it’s all about who you know!
Of course, it also helps when you have an interest in healthcare. I have always been interested the healthcare field, and working at our Richfield hearing clinic has served very much as a gateway into healthcare. So far, my experience here has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to help people. For me, that’s really what it’s all about.
I love to meet all the people who walk through our Richfield hearing clinic doors. There’s always someone new to meet and help, and there’s always something to learn. I love getting into the heart of the audiology industry and learning what makes it tick. I am fascinated by its history and many of the early concepts that gave way to modern advances in both patient care and technology.
Outside of the office, I’m a farm girl. I, my three kids, and husband of 15 years, own a small farm. There, we raise a whole menagerie of birds: chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, peafowl, you name it! Just don’t expect to find any of these feathered creatures on the dining room table. They’re all my babies and very much a part of the family. They also all have their own personalities, especially the Tom Turkey. He fancies himself a guard dog! If you don’t have his express permission, he probably isn’t going to let you into the yard.
