Treasurer, Board of Directors | She, Her, Hers

Tiffany currently serves as Treasurer of the ISLI Board of Directors. Tiffany is a graduate of Simpson College and the Educational Opportunity Association Emerging Leaders Institute. She works for Iowa State University Extension as a 4-H Youth Program Specialist for the Central Iowa region. This role allows her to advocate for, help develop, and implement innovative programming for youth voice and youth choice, much like the mission of ISLI.

 

Tiffany has committed her 17-year career and volunteering to working with students of all ages from diverse backgrounds and identities in rural, suburban, and urban areas in a variety of both formal and informal education settings. In addition to 4-H, this has included being an art teacher, college access/advising for federal TRIO and GEAR UP programs, higher education, and Genesis Youth Foundation.

Tiffany’s personal and professional passion for and experience with social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion inspired her to join the ISLI Board, in hopes to support the student team in achieving their goals with representation reflecting Iowa’s diverse population and empowering marginalized students to ensure their voices are also heard.

 

Outside of work and ISLI, Tiffany enjoys spending time with family, fitness, traveling, watching sports, art, and being an active member of Showing Up for Racial Justice-Des Moines Chapter.
