Development Manager, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship
Tiana was born in Jamaica, moved to the U.S. at an early age and grew up in Florida before moving to Chicago in 2017. Tiana is a builder and connector and has worked in the nonprofit sector for close to 10 years. She has a deep passion for food access, environmental sustainability, and youth development and currently works at Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) as the Midwest Development Manager, building and leading the Midwest's fundraising program, including volunteerism, events, and Board management.
Tiana was looking for a way to make an impact on environmental sustainability and food access and, by regularly visiting GCM's Lincoln Park farmers market, realized she could get involved by joining GCM's Board to help further their mission and impact. Tiana lives in Lincoln Park with her husband and enjoys practicing yoga, travelling, learning about Chicago’s history and architecture, eating and drinking her way around the city, and visiting Chicago’s many cultural institutions.
