Senior Adviser to the President and CEO
For more than 15 years, Tiffany has devoted her career to expanding opportunity through education, while serving in schools, nonprofit organizations, and government. As Senior Adviser to the President and CEO, Tiffany utilizes extensive experience in education practice and policy, communications, and management to provide strategic counsel to The Education Trust’s leadership team, craft messaging for the President and CEO, and drive the organization’s work to ensure all students—especially the most vulnerable—receive an excellent education.
Most recently, Tiffany was chief of staff for communications development at the U.S. Department of Education. In that role, Tiffany led the speechwriting division and was a senior member of the agency’s communications team, setting the vision for the Department’s messaging and outreach. Tiffany served at the Department for 12 years as editor-in-chief of publications, manager of federal grants and contracts, and adviser on policies related to elementary and secondary education. Previously, Tiffany was a site director at a nonprofit tutoring program for students in impoverished wards of Washington, D.C. and a high school English teacher in Maryland with the Baltimore City Public Schools.
Tiffany received her master’s degree in Education Policy and Management from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a bachelor’s degree in English and certification in secondary education from Connecticut College.
Henry Adams famously said that a “teacher affects eternity—he can never tell where his influence stops.” When one of the students I taught in Baltimore City reached out to me years after he was in my classroom to let me know that he had decided to pursue a career in teaching, I began to truly understand that enduring influence—and I felt humbled to be a part of the network of educators who helped that young man succeed.
Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?
I deeply believe that all students can succeed and that access to a quality education is an issue of social justice. That is why I am passionate about working at The Education Trust, an organization that strives to eliminate opportunity and achievement gaps and that understands the imperative to put all students—especially those who are most disadvantaged—on a path to thrive in college and careers. Making that vision a reality is work I am proud to engage in each day with Ed Trust’s talented team.
