Meet Dr. Tapia

Hugo has been married to Dr. Robbie Adler-Tapia for the last 34 years. They were married at the church across the street from City Hall. Hugo and Robbie are the proud parents of Michael, Max, and Maura – and they all are graduates of Corona del Sol High School. And now their “empty nest” is filled with two “therapy dogs.”


Hugo is currently a school psychologist for the Tempe Union High School District, where he continues to work to improve the lives of his students and their families. He is chair of the City of Tempe Human Relations Commission, where he leads fellow citizens to improve the lives of all living and working in Tempe.
