County Director - Stanislaus County & Mother Lode Region
Tiffani Burns has worked in the Foothills, Oakdale, Turlock, and Modesto for the last 26 years after moving to the area from Texas in 1997. In her most recent role as Marketing Manager for Doctors Medical Center, she saw firsthand the critical need for healthcare workers, especially in the last three years. She has a long history with non-profits, for which she started volunteering at the age of 13. She has been working for, serving on the board of, or supporting the efforts of a large variety of non-profits ever since. She also has a background in fundraising and program development and successfully raised over $ 1.5 million to support programs, specifically nursing, and the sciences, at Stanislaus State. She is excited to take her previous experience in non-profits, government, K-12 and higher education, and healthcare to involve each sector in the creation of actionable solutions to address workforce shortages. She has formed a deep love and connection to the Central Valley and values the relationships and friendships she has made here immensely. She has strong communication, listening, development, and collaboration-building skills that will serve her well in this new role of bringing together all relevant interests in working toward a common goal. She considers it an honor to expand the great work that has been done in San Joaquin County to Stanislaus County and the Mother Lode Region. A graduate of the University of Texas, Austin, she lives in Modesto with her husband and bonus kid.
