Tyler Schrenk

Since working as the Executive Director and President of The TSF starting in 2016, Tyler Schrenk has been dedicated to using assistive technology, not only in his own life, but using his experience to spread the word and set up technology that can enhance the lives of people living with disabilities. Tyler has completed projects as small as using technology to help a young lady with cerebral palsy communicate with her family, setting up a quadriplegic control the lights in her home to purchasing and transporting a power wheelchair, to a gentleman living in Romania whose independence previously was being pushed around in a manual chair.  
Tyler Schrenk also lends his expertise on assistive technology to companies such as Microsoft. He routinely works with companies to ensure the products or software they put forth are accessible to those with disabilities. In the coming months, Tyler is set to receive two important certifications regarding assistive technology, the Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) certification and the Resna certification. These two distinctions will allow Tyler to provide even more help to those who need it.
