After a few failed attempts at sobriety, he ended up in a long-term treatment center outside of Asheville where he adopted a new lifestyle free from drugs and alcohol. Tyler has been sober for 9+ years and now enjoys helping others in early recovery learn this way of life.
Tyler received his Associate’s Degree from Cape Fear Community College in 2006 and earned his CADC in 2020. Outside of work, Tyler is a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur. He also enjoys hiking, cooking, and hanging out with his wife, daughter, and two dogs!
