As a POP student in his first year at UT Southwestern, Tyler can’t wait to help his future patients thrive. His first career aspiration was to help people with paralysis using his engineering and neuroscience background, but ultimately, he chose to pursue the prosthetist path so he could help veterans like his grandfather, who was a bilateral amputee. Tyler experienced firsthand the bond he could form with patients after shadowing a prosthetist at a military base. He now looks forward to taking care of people and supporting them through their progress. With each day on campus comes new challenges in his classes, but Tyler enjoys learning through trial and error and appreciates working in a niche profession with experienced mentors.
