As a TIES partner and Chief Operations Officer, Tiffany focuses on supporting the organization’s growth while enabling the team to have the greatest impact on developing the next-generation workforce. She has served as a key member of management teams for projects valued up to $500M for a variety of clients, including foundations, businesses, and the government. She also contributes to initiatives ranging from in-depth R&D and engineering to the development of processes and procedures to streamline operations. During her 15-year career at Battelle Memorial Institute, Tiffany valued the need for diverse thinking on project teams. This need led to a passion for making all students aware of their abilities and opportunities in STEM fields in order to increase the pipeline of students going into technical and innovative careers. Tiffany joined TIES in 2013 to bring together both her desire to reach all students, especially women and minorities, and to use her project management and operational skills to build a thriving business. During this time, TIES has seen an almost 200% increase in sales and has increased the capacity of its virtual team with consultants all over the world. Tiffany also led the development of internal procedures and protocols to assure compliance for government contracts and compliance with DCAA regulations. Tiffany enjoys bringing her various experiences to the TIES team, including management of a variety of R&D projects, sustainable development consulting, innovation measurement, venture management, and the development of corporate-wide policies and procedures for program management and support.
“I love working at TIES because our team sees the need to provide opportunities for inquiry-based education to all students so they can see their opportunities in the world.
As the COO of TIES, Tiffany manages an operations team to enable all back-office activities, including proposal management, contracting, pricing/budgeting, human resource management, project management and delivery, and codification of tools and processes. Tiffany looks forward to supporting the TIES team to advance the quality and reach of STEM education in the U.S. and around the world.
