Tiffani is an active member of the Transportation community serving as a leadership co-chair of the transportation team for Cap-to-Cap.  A graduate of the University of California, Davis, Tiffani received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. 

At the age of 25, Tiffani became the Transportation Manager for the City of Lodi overseeing the City’s transportation funding authorizations, project management paperwork, and in her leftover time, running the City’s transit system.  It became apparent quickly that she had a passion for transit and the passengers served by the system, and she focused on development and innovation. 

She oversaw a comprehensive fare restructuring and managed to cobble together the funding to bring the City’s new maintenance facility to fruition, a project over a decade in the making. Following her work at the City of Lodi, Tiffani became the Transit Systems Manager for the City of Elk Grove guiding the system through the great recession and overseeing both fare restructuring and service adjustments.  While in Elk Grove, Tiffani was able to build a foundation to renew an aging transit vehicle fleet and oversaw the procurement and installation of modern farebox technology. 

Throughout her career, her passion for helping others became stronger and in particular work with the elderly and persons with disabilities.  This led her to Paratransit, Inc. where she is able to combine her passion for transit with her background in public service. As Chief Executive Officer, Tiffani manages an Executive Team and a talented staff of nearly 100 dedicated transit professionals.  As the Consolidated Transportation Services Agency, Paratransit, Inc. delivers innovative programs to numerous social service agencies and the public.  From cutting edge transportation initiatives enhancing mobility and access to address food insecurity in Sacramento, to programs custom designed to increase access to healthcare, to the delivery of nearly 2.5 million meals, to maintenance and operations support of more than 14 major non-profits, to nation leading mobility management programs, Paratransit, and Tiffani, are always looking forward.
