Tiffany is a Boston native and DC transplant. She spent six years in the travel and tourism industry where she found her passion for brand marketing, content creation and social media management. Her love for travel is strong and heavily influenced by the local food she gets to indulge in.
A Sankofa Scholar graduate of Westfield State University in 2012, she majored in Psychology and Spanish. As a student of the Spanish language for more than 10 years and a second-generation American, her exposure to different cultures and food has driven her curiosity to continue to explore the world through food and travel.
She’s tried her hand at fried insects (bamboo worms are really good!), fertilized eggs, and kangaroo, but her favorite indulgence is a lava cake with vanilla bean ice cream.
