Tiffany Parrish - Chair of Alumni Relations

Tiffany moved to Martin County in 2001 from Long Island. She graduated from Martin County High School in 2008, when she earned her spot in Nina Haven’s Circle of Scholars.  Tiffany earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Management with a concentration in Healthcare Management from Indian River State College, where she also played softball for the Pioneers her freshman year. She works for a non-profit organization that serves the Treasure Coast and neighboring rural counties; collaborating with various system and community partners to implement various health programs, facilitate and support community health assessments (CHAs) and community health improvement plans (CHIPs) as well as organize local, regional, and state professional training and networking events. Largely due to a few influential mentors, Tiffany discovered a career in Public Health and never looked back. 

She is currently enrolled at the University of South Florida studying for a Master's Degree in Public Health - Public Health Practice with a Graduate Certificate in Social Marketing & Social Change. Tiffany welcomes the opportunity to bring the vision of the Nina Haven Alumni Network to life, connecting scholars to achieve greater success through mentorship and a strong professional network offering information, support, and encouragement.
