About the Director
Since 2000, Tyler has supported and mentored children, teenagers and adults from various cultures with differing abilities and needs. He demonstrates strong leadership skills and is a calm, intuitive, and gentle natured person that people are naturally drawn to. His passion and professionalism, combined with his ability to put people naturally at ease are big reasons why Tyler is able to empower people to get the results they are seeking in life. Tyler started his career in 2000 through working in residential group homes supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. He worked his way to Residential Coordinator in just two years. In 2004, Tyler decided that it was time to pursue his dream of traveling; because of this Tyler has become quite a seasoned traveler, having traveled to 20+ countries. From 2004-2007, Tyler resided and worked in China as an ESL teacher, teaching pre-school to college ages. Upon arriving back in Canada in 2007, Tyler started to facilitate industrial safety training in Langley. Early in the Spring of 2009, Tyler was invited to Turkey to instruct at Beykent University in Istanbul. While in Turkey, he also provided private consultation for families who had children with disabilities. After the contract finished late in 2009, Tyler returned to Western Canada to continue providing the facilitation of industrial safety training. In 2010, Tyler made his return to disability services, providing outreach, community inclusion, skill development, and employment services. Tyler quickly developed a reputation for getting noticeable positive results particularly in employment services where a placement rate of 75% has been achieved. Due to these positive results in 2013, Tyler was offered a position at a Work BC employment center as a job developer and facilitator of life skills workshops for disability services. He stayed with Work BC until he became the Director for Empowered Living Services. In his free time Tyler volunteers for the Mission Optimist Club, Mission AM Sunshine Rotary Club and the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley. Tyler is an active on ice minor hockey official. Tyler volunteered for the Abbotsford Female Hockey Association where he held the position of Referee in Chief (RIC). This position consisted of helping girls aged 12 and up to become confident hockey officials. During his 5 seasons as RIC, Tyler gained a reputation for producing high quality officials, some of which were selected for the BC Hockey above minor program. Swimming, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, river rafting, reading books, bungee jumping and travel are some of the many activities Tyler enjoys.
