“NEVER be afraid to be yourself. You are the best person to be you.”

When asked what advice she has for the next generation, Tiffany Ferriss offered this piece of guidance.

“Being someone else will do a disservice to the amazing person you were destined to be,” she said. And it is clear that Tiffany herself has taken this advice to heart. A natural socialite and leader, Tiffany exudes an air of confidence, openness, and positivity when she walks into the room.

No doubt that these qualities have led to her success as Manager of Branch Administration for the DMV Metro Market at professional staffing agency, Robert Half.
