Gov. Steve Sisolak has appointed Dr. Tiffany Tyler, the CEO of Communities in Schools, as the new director of the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR).
“Dr. Tyler’s unique personal experiences as well as her distinguished career helping at-risk Nevadans will be an asset to the department and my team,” Sisolak said in a statement.
In addition to providing job placement and training assistance, DETR is the state’s official source for employment and wage data.
Prior to Communities in Schools, which provides resources and case management for at-risk students, Tyler was the chief operating officer of Nevada Partners, a nonprofit that focuses on employment, education and housing support.
Tyler served as a member of Sisolak’s 28-member transition team. She replaces Don Soderberg, who held the position since 2014.
