About Tiffany

Tiffany Capehart (E-letters). Tiffany is a creative Freelance Marketing & Communications Strategist. When she was in college and they asked her what she wanted to be, she quickly replied, “THE NEXT OPRAH!” However, while she didn’t quite make it into show biz, she has used her big ENFJ personality to help bring people together, take ideas to the next level and help her clients to explore possibilities they didn’t see on the horizon. With a BS in Communications concentration in Public Relations and minor in English from Radford University, her 10 year career has spanned from government to healthcare and even three years (2013 – 2016) as the Special Event Coordinator for Fredericksburg Parks & Rec (think Picnic in the Park, Soapbox Derby, Christmas Parade, etc).

In her spare time, you can find her with her Marine, two “bonus” kids (she has never been a fan of the word “stepkids”) and their rescue dog, Oakley making good on their goal to #spendlessdomore. But for just her, you’ll mostly find her down at the beach every day, making a stranger a friend, working out while dreaming about pizza, making lists for ALL THE THINGS, meal planning while trying not to burn down the kitchen or checking things off her always growing bucket list.
