Tyler Anne Freeman

Tyler is IFCPP’s Program Manager. After graduating with a B.A. in Communications from East Carolina University, Tyler went on to work in Sales and Customer Service. She got the chance to hone her customer service skills working at a busy, high-end salon in St. Petersburg, FL, where she managed nine Guest Coordinators. She developed and wrote the Standard Operational Practices and Procedures Manual for the Front Desk of the salon; the first in its 30-year history. After her husband retired from active duty military service they jumped on an opportunity to live in Naples, Italy. While there Tyler volunteered her expertise at the Fleet and Family Support Center on the U.S. Naval Base, assisting new arrivals in finding the information they need about life in a new country and helping them make the many adjustments that come with living in a different culture. Now back in the United States, Tyler is happy to be putting her experience to work for IFCPP, managing membership, certification, daily operations, and several exciting new IFCPP projects, including IFCPP’s Certified Visitor Relations Specialist (CVRS) certification, and online Learning Management System.
