About Rep. Chynah Tyler
Committed to Community, Dedicated to Progress
Chynah Tyler was born and raised in Roxbury, MA which established a special place in her heart for the district. She credits programs offered to her as a child with the authentic sense of pride she feels as a Roxbury native. That pride is what encourages her to represent the residents of Boston.
After earning her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Law, Policy, and Society from Northeastern University, she began her career as a Case Manager for Federal Inmates assisting those nearing release with securing employment, housing, and community support. From that experience, she grew to understand the importance of state government in delivering valuable resources to the most vulnerable populations.
In 2016, at just 26 years old, Tyler ran a successful campaign to succeed long-time incumbent for the Massachusetts House of Representatives, representing the 7th Suffolk District. She is currently serving her second term as a Massachusetts State Representative, and is the Vice-Chair of the Public Health Committee, and Chair of the Boston Delegation.
