Senior Vice President, Human Resources
Tiffany Lawrence brings more than 17 years of Human Resources experience to NeighborWorks America. She has devoted her career to the field and began her journey at the Bloomberg Bureau of National Affairs, where she realized the tremendous potential the human resources divisions had in elevating their colleagues and helping them progress within the company as well as within their respective career interests.
"When employees look back over their career, they remember their HR staff," says Lawrence, "We have the ability to have a long-lasting impact."
Since her time at Bloomberg, she has held leadership positions at Caldwell Technology Solutions, Reyes Holdings, Capstrat and most recently, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner. Working in a variety of industries has kept her jobs interesting and has also allowed her to experience many different work environments.
Being at a nonprofit has added a new dimension for Lawrence, as many of the employees are, themselves, the key asset, and the passion that they bring to their work is inspiring. Lawrence realizes that the employees are critical to the way the organization carries out the mission; every investment in them is especially important.
Lawrence holds a MBA in HR Management from the University of Maryland, University College and a bachelor's degree in biology from Bowie State University in Maryland. She is also a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR and SHRM-SCP) and has been a member of the Society for Human Resources Management since 1999.
In her spare time, Lawrence is very active in her church and her local community.
