Get to know a Momenteer: Tiffany!
With Erika off on a well-deserved holiday, I am once again your guest host in our Get to Know a Momenteer series. It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our newest Momenteer — Tiffany Elliot! Tiffany joined our team as Marketing Manager only a month ago, and already she is bringing new rigour and vigour to The Moment. Although we’ve only just met, I already admire Tiffany’s passion and dedication to achieving her dreams – you don’t become a gold-medal winning international athlete without incredible motivation and resilience. As soon as you meet Tiffany, you are struck by her great laugh (update: please know that I wrote this before interviewing Tiffany – too funny that I landed on her favourite compliment!!). Her natural warmth and openness bring a wonderful lightness & buoyancy to the studio.
As I write this, I can hear her engaging some other Momenteers in a lively debate about the role of culture in identifying & shifting societal biases. Seeking alternate view points, asking hard questions, and digging deeper to understand why — suffice to say, Tiffany fits right in!
I caught up with Tiffany this afternoon in studio, read on for more, and please check out her bio on our team page.
