After moving to Australia from the U.S. in 2017, Tyler utilised her background training in yoga and started her own personal training and yoga therapy business. Teaching at studios, gyms and corporations around Brisbane, Tyler connected people to meditation, yoga (and even beer yoga) to strengthen bonds across different team dynamics. After being introduced to Flight Centre Travel Group by a friend, Tyler joined the family in FCTG’s internal brand Healthwise in 2018.

“After three years at Healthwise, I well and truly learnt what it meant to be a part of the Flight Centre Family,” Tyler says.

“What I loved most about my time at Healthwise was our amazing people. I love that FCTG’s number one philosophy is our people and that I had the opportunity each and every day to support, inspire and engage our people,” Tyler notes.

“Due to the flexibility and support given at work, I was also able to work for not-for-profits alongside my role at Healthwise where I supported vulnerable young people transitioning out of foster and residential care.”

Unfortunately, like many others in the travel industry, Tyler’s job fell victim to COVID-19. Tyler was able to shine a light for others and went to work for multiple not-for-profit organisations, in addition to volunteering and running several fundraising events across Brisbane.

Through our alumni platform, Tyler saw a role that sparked her interest, a newly created Culture & Engagement Coordinator contract.

“I knew then and there that this was the right time, right place and the perfect role for me to be in,” Tyler reflects.

“After leaving FCTG, I relearned the importance of giving back to vulnerable communities. I did a lot of research and conversation investigation around corporate social responsibility and was excited for the opportunity to bring my passion, knowledge and experience back to FCTG.”

As Culture & Engagement Coordinator, Tyler implements a range of engagement opportunities for our people through the Flight Centre Foundation, volunteering, reconciliation efforts, and mental well-being initiatives.

“The thing I enjoy most about my current role is the number of different people I get to work with. Being able to see what we can achieve for vulnerable communities collectively as a company is something truly special,” Tyler says.

“I am also extremely proud of the relaunch of the Flight Centre Foundation. Working for a company that values giving back to the communities we work, live and travel is extremely important to me, and it's nice to know that I am working with people who share values that align with mine.”
