Cyndy Hillier

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

[email protected]

Cyndy has been ED of Tualatin Together since 2011.

“I got involved with Tualatin Together because I saw how addiction was tearing up my own family as well as the unbearable shame I felt for not being able to keep my family “in order.”  Digging into the science of prevention has brought hope and ignited a passion to serve our community in a way that builds safety nets for youth through education, environmental changes and community engagement.”

Ali Hoyle

COMMUNITY OUTREACH COORDINATOR

[email protected]

Ali has been on staff with Tualatin Together since 2014.

"As a parent of four girls and a member of the Tualatin community since 2003, I am passionate about the youth in our community having every opportunity to reach their full potential. My own life has been touched by the devastating effects of adolescent drug use and I know too well that no one would ever choose a life of addiction for themselves or for their child. I believe that the work Tualatin Together does in the community to educate parents about protective factors and youth about the risk of underage use can impact the lives of this and future generations."
