As a Navajo woman, Tyrellyna upheld her role as a matriarch in her family and looked after and spent time with her late grandmother and the elders in her community. She often took them food, paid them visits and helped them around their homes. That was when she developed a love for seniors and a desire to help others.

Tyrellyna began her career in early childhood education before transitioning into a career in senior living. She has served at The Bridge at Farmington for nearly 15 years.

Tyrellyna was the business office manager at The Bridge at Farmington before being asked to step into the role of executive director about eight years ago. It’s a role she continues to embrace today.

Tyrellyna prides herself in looking for creative and innovative ways to serve the senior community and credits her Navajo upbringing and culture for her leadership skills and style.
