Coordinator, Forestry Program
Tiffany joined the NWF in the summer of 2012 as the Forestry Program Coordinator to assist programs focusing on longleaf pine restoration efforts and sustainable forestry initiatives. She is primarily working on an outreach program to enhance the livelihoods of underserved, minority landowners by aiding in sustainable forestry practices, as well as laying the foundation for sustainable rural jobs through the construction of a new value chain that is focused on products from sustainable forestland management of longleaf pine.
Prior to joining the NWF, Tiffany attended the University of Georgia where she obtained a B.S.E.S. in Environmental Economics and Management from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, as well as a M.S. in Forest Sciences from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. During her time as a graduate student, she worked alongside faculty to determine the value of ecosystem services provided by private forests in Georgia, as well as evaluating the journalistic norms of environmental coverage involving policy processes. Tiffany also worked for UGA Discover Abroad for two years, where she traveled alongside faculty and staff to Australia and New Zealand on multiple study abroad programs to educate students about global sustainability.
Tiffany’s interest in natural resource conservation began as child where she grew up a small farm in a rural community outside of Athens, Georgia, spending most of her time outdoors. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, diving, gardening, teaching fitness classes and participating in triathlons.
