Board of Directors & Staff

The Foundation is a public charity governed by a voluntary Board of Directors who are recruited for their passion, expertise and experience that broadens the reach and scope of the foundation. The 2023 Board is comprised of thirteen dedicated individuals whose responsibility is the fiscal viability and strategic vision of the organization.



The Tyler Robinson Foundation is based on a very simple premise – families affected by pediatric cancer have to be brave every day. TRF helps them stay brave, providing relief through networking support and financial assistance so that families and patients can focus on what matters most, hope for their future. It is uplifting and, at the same time, incredibly humbling to be a part of this group of people who have taken on the challenge of cancer’s unseen costs.

I started on this path through a chance encounter with someone impacted by it. It's impossible to be unmoved by kids struggling with a disease that can feel so incomprehensible and overwhelming. And yet, the courage and positive outlook they and their families embody is astounding. I can think of nothing more gratifying than finding a family who feels like they've had their whole world turned upside down and giving them the support, resources, and love they need to sustain them in and beyond their trial.

Tyler’s story of courage in the face of cancer inspired me to get involved with TRF; and the courage and strength of all of our TRF families continues to inspire me every single day. Children who are battling cancer are among the bravest and most resilient children I know. I am so proud to be a part of TRF because I know our TRF families will get emotional and financial support which is tailored to their individual needs. The TRF board members, staff and volunteers are incredibly dedicated, intelligent and compassionate.

As a mother, I am incredibly passionate about helping children and their parents. Through TRF I now have the opportunity to use my years of experience as a wealth management advisor to help parents with sick children successfully navigate through the very real financial pressures that often follow the diagnosis and treatment of a disease.

Cancer is a devastating enemy that not only attacks the patient but the loved ones that strengthen the healing process. TRF fights back through direct support to the patients and families in this extensive battle. Their resources provide the hope and respite necessary to combat this disease, especially in our most vulnerable population, our children.

Throughout my health care career, I’ve witnessed the devastating impact when a child is stricken with cancer. In my own family, our young son endured numerous surgeries due to a challenging health condition, therefore I know firsthand the personal struggles a family can face. The support provided by TRF is heaven-sent, and provided to assist in helping these families by supporting them so they may concentrate on their child and focus on their recovery, while also strengthening them financially and emotionally. This mission is something I’m proud and honored to be a part of.

I believe strongly in preventing childhood cancer from destroying the child’s support group while it attacks the child. A large part of the cure is the continued love, reinforcement and companionship of the family and TRF helps protect and enforce these basic needs for recovery.

TRF holds a special place in my heart. Pediatric cancer is a devastating illness, and the costs associated can financially cripple a family. I am so grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the foundation. It is critical that the TRF families have the resources they need, so they can focus on their loved ones.

Getting to know our TRF families over the years and being able to share their stories of hope and strength has been incredibly inspiring. It’s an honor to help support these families and kids who show unbelievable courage through such a difficult time.
I’m forever moved by the resiliency and positive nature I’ve witnessed firsthand and am so grateful to be part of a foundation that offers love and assistance to let these families know they’re not alone.
