Tiffany Assman, Wikibrands Community Manager

Tiffany is currently in the process of finishing her undergraduate Honours degree in Applied Economics at Queen’s University. Gaining an early start in the world of commerce, she began working on the floor of a forward-thinking retail organization at the age of 15 – attaining invaluable experience and insight into the inner-workings of decentralized retail management.

These learnings, combined with a personal passion for all things social, led Tiffany to her experiences with media, and leveraging the vast digital world at a hyperlocal level. Of particular interest, Tiffany is attracted to projects that involve, or create, an intimate connection between brand and consumer, and foster a true sense of community. On a different scale, Tiffany has also worked on several larger new-media assignments, which require a focus entirely different than that of localized ones.

Aside from her professional life, Tiffany loves to practice yoga, travels as often as humanly possible, and is mildly obsessed with big, hairy audacious goals!
