Background story:

Tiffany is from Conroe, Texas, and says she originally did not want to attend Sam because it was so close to home. However, she ended up choosing SHSU thanks to an alumnus. The alumnus took Tiffany around to the different Ag Departments to meet the department heads and constantly took her on tours of the campus. She said thanks to this alumnus she fell in love with the campus and ended up choosing to attend Sam Houston.

Inspirational/Meaningful Leadership Moment:

Tiffany’s motto is: “work hard in silence; let success be your noise.” She says this means not to rely on compliments, but instead on your own personal confidence. Since this is her motto, Tiffany says when people do give her compliments and tell her she is doing a good job, or even come to her for advice; it inspires her to keep up the hard work.

Where would you like to be in 5 years’ time?

Five years from now, Tiffany hopes to be employed within the Pharmaceutical Sales industry, and have a career she enjoys. She wants to be starting on her family, and being able to make her own schedule. The word that generally comes to Tiffany’s mind when asked about where she would like to be is “happy”.

If you could ask everyone reading this to do one thing, what would it be?

“Be confident. The biggest key to being a leader is not to doubt yourself. A part of that is asking questions and delegating. Also, get involved, lead in other ways throughout your life- it really pays off.”
