Tiffany is the founder of the Social Change Agents Institute, a project that brings scholars, professionals, and educators to developing countries to offer free mental health services and social change workshops in developing countries of the African Diaspora such as South Africa, Brazil and Haiti. Prior to running the institute, Tiffany worked as a Policy Fellow for United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand where she focused on issues of criminal justice, gender and race equity.
Tiffany also served as a Civic Engagement Director at the YMCA of Greater New York. She managed over 20 staff and was responsible for helping teenagers learn how to draft legislation through the Youth in Government program. Tiffany was appointed the YMCA’s Change Agent for New York City for her progress and accomplishments in youth development. This distinction enabled her to work with various young professionals throughout the world to create a national YMCA strategy to address poverty. In the summer of 2013, she was one of the facilitators at the YMCA’s Youth Festival in Prague; this international experience awakened a desire to have an impact beyond her role with the YMCA.
Tiffany obtained her bachelors in English Literature from Hunter College and her Masters Degree in Social Policy from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice. Currently, Tiffany is enrolled in the doctoral program at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and serves as a Lecturer at Columbia University School of Social Work and an adjunct professor at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
