Tiffany graduated from Winthrop University with degrees in journalism and Spanish. She worked for her college newspaper, The Johnsonian, for four years. She also interned at The Greer Citizen in Greer, SC and worked part-time for The Herald in Rock Hill, SC. She's from Sumter, SC where she freelanced for her hometown newspaper for a short time. Now, Tiffany is happy to be living in and exploring St. Andrews.   My Beliefs At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know. Politics  How would you describe your political beliefs? I consider myself a moderate. I lean left on most issues, but with others I lean towards the right.   Religion How religious would you consider yourself? (casual, observant, devout, non religious) I'm an observant Christian. I respect others with different views.   Local Hot-Button Issues What do you think are the most important issues facing the community? I think the biggest issue facing this community is the decline of the business area. With the county's plan to revitalize Broad River Rd. and the Dutch Square area, the problem should improve.  Where do you stand on each of these issues? I'm all for growth and redevelopment. It will be good for the community.
