Founder and CEO

Robert is originally from Oceanside, CA but being the son of a US Marine, he had the opportunity to move frequently and experience life in different parts of the country. He graduated with a BA in Psychology from Claremont McKenna College. Not long after college, he moved to Arizona, where his 25 year long career in sales management took on many different challenging opportunities. Robert and his wife Terri were inspired to open Tyler’s Place because they have a teenage son with autism and they just could not find a good enough after school program for him. Robert enjoys traveling, tennis and the Arizona outdoors which means he likes to get out and go off roading with his son Tyler as often as he can.
“As a proud autism dad, my first priority will always be to make sure that our members have an engaging and uplifting experience when they set foot inside our facility.”

Born and raised in Arizona, this Mesa native has over eight years of experience working within the special needs community. Most recently, she was a teacher in a self-contained classroom comprised of teenagers and young adults with autism. During her time there, Liz developed and managed the after school and summer programs. Whether it is volunteering at her local church or spending time with her family, her passion for teaching and helping others shines through in everything she does. Liz loves playing with her two kitties and collects just about anything cat related. She also enjoys reading and spending time outdoors.
“My life’s vision is to provide the tools and knowledge for those impacted by developmental disabilities to live their most independent and successful lives.”
