Outreach & Fundraising
Tyler has been in the fire service for the past 8 years and currently works in the Bay Area as a firefighter / paramedic. Two months after being on the job, Tyler experienced a call that changed his life when he experienced his first Critical Incident Stress Debrief (CISD) and began a very long journey that he is still learning to navigate. Five years later, almost to the day, he experienced that same career call that so many said would never happen again. His journey through the fire service has thus far taught him that this career is a marathon, not a sprint. We need to be here for one another, and he wants to help in any way possible.
Kamryn is completing her Master’s degree in Social Work and has previously completed her Bachelors of Science in Psychology. She has been studying and working in the mental health field for 5 years and counting! Kamryn also has a significant other who is currently serving in the Air Force and understands the hardship that comes along with the separation TDY’s and deployments. She looks forward to helping The Overwatch Collective expand and getting individuals and families the help they need/deserve!
