Born and raised on the Island, Tyler completed his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at UPEI. His passion to help others and interest in academic research, guided Tyler to pursue a Master’s degree in Human Biology. His thesis focused on visual cueing in Parkinsonian patients, as an aid to promote safer turning strategies. Tyler has presented findings from his research at regional, national, and international conferences.
This is Tyler’s first year as Assistant Program Director. He is immensely looking forward to experiencing first-hand the powerful impact of Shad and its ability to ignite youth and have a lasting impact.
Outside of the Kinesiology teaching lab, Tyler enjoys watching and playing hockey, listening to his favorite band The Tragically Hip, and spending quality time with his purebred German Shepherd Gibson.
