Tiffany earned her Master’s degree from Long Island University.


For 7 years, Tiffany practiced as a licensed & registered Creative Arts Therapist. She started her professional career leading a program for children with developmental disabilities, working alongside ABA therapists and special educators to create 504s, IEPs and behavior plans to be implemented in home, school, and the program.

Then for 5 years worked in inpatient psychiatric hospitals, primarily working with young children 8 to 18 years old. Tiffany loved being able to counsel her kids going through some of the toughest times in their lives, giving them a safe space and the tools to use when difficult situations arise. The experience she had there was challenging, but overwhelmingly rewarding.

In 2013, Tiffany joined Fusion Academy, opening the Brooklyn Campus. She has always been drawn to Fusion’s unique ability to impact each child & change lives every single school day. In 2014, she joined the Long Island Fusion team as Head of School, to be closer to her family and immediately it felt like home! Tiffany is humbled to use her dynamic experience and passion to continue fostering the success of Fusion’s students, team of staff & herself.
