Tiffany is a digital media expert. During her time at GE, she was able to quickly understand complicated subjects and then turn those subjects into engaging online content. She’s always on the cutting edge of understanding new digital platforms and channels, and knowing which ones will work for the right audience. Tiffany also has endless energy and enthusiasm to execute on all projects and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.
