Profile Biography 
Tiffany is the newest member of the National Girls Collaborative Project's National Champions Board. She is an Associate Member of the American Institute of Architects, where she serves on the AIA's K-12 Working Group. More information regarding the AIA's K-12 Working Group curriculum can be found at https://www.aia.org/articles/148886-introducing-architecture-into-the-k-12-curr.

Born and raised in Detroit, Tiffany holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, a Master of Architecture, and a Master of Business Administration all from Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI. Tiffany is currently working at national A&E firm SmithGroupJJR, as well as adjunct professor and Community Outreach Mentor at her alma mater, LTU.

Tiffany recently pitched an initiative called 400 Forward to the James S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which landed her as a finalist and winner for the 2017 Detroit Knight Arts Challenge. In light of the 400th African American woman recently becoming a licensed architect, this new initiative's mission includes creating the next generation of licensed African American Women architects through a multi-point of contact starting at k-12 levels through licensure.

She is dedicated to raising awareness on how planning and design makes a significant social impact in urban communities, and seeks to examine the influence of the built environment and its impacts on culture, behavior, and health. Tiffany has participated in panels and seminars discussing the challenges she has faced first-hand as a woman of color in the profession.
