Tiffany was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, where she graduated from THE University of Nevada with her Bachelor of Science in Education with a minor in Mathematics. She eventually earned her Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. She applied both degrees over her twelve years as a math and leadership educator in Washoe County School District, where she coupled her love for service with her passion for helping young adults reach their goals.
As the Marketing and Development Manager at NNCCF, Tiffany is responsible for developing community partnerships, while managing marketing efforts and public relations.
When she’s not working, she enjoys traveling, walking the Truckee River, soaking in the sun at Tahoe or local events, and spending time with her musically talented husband, their friends, and their sweet yorkie, Rocky.
Why I started working at NNCCF:
I started working with NNCCF as a community partner and was amazed by the work the foundation does in our community. As a northern Nevada native, I am passionate about philanthropic work that lifts our community and allows neighbors to help their neighbors. Having cared for my father through his cancer diagnosis, I understand the financial and emotional toll it can take on a family and I am honored to work for a foundation that relieves some of that burden, especially for parents as they face this journey with their child. NNCCF marries my love for my community with my passion for living a life of service.
Ask me about:
All genres of music, The Office, dogs, and my love of numbers!
What I think is amazing:
I think humans are amazing! I have watched humans overcome adversity, create something out of nothing, and have the kindest hearts despite their circumstances. The inherent nature of humans to want to be kind and helpful is wonderful to experience.
Something quirky about me:
I love all things glitter and rhinestones! I am also a human jukebox. I can’t tell you the name of a song or the artist, but if you say something that sounds like a line from a song or a commercial jingle, I will sing the line 99% of the time. No quality guarantee.
My role model:
My dad, he was the hardest-working human I know, who dedicated his life to supporting his family. The lessons he taught me have made me who I am today, and I am grateful to have had the privilege of being his daughter.
