Tiffinnei grew up in Douglasville, Ga. She began taking gymnastics on and off at the age of seven. She found she enjoyed gymnastics and playing other sports as a child and continued these activities into her early adult life. Starting in 2002 during her undergraduate career, she began teaching gymnastics and tumbling at Douglasville Gymnastics and Cheerleading. It was during this time that she discovered her love for teaching children and working closely with them as they developed new skills. After getting married in 2007, her focus changed from helping children learn new tumbling skills to helping children learn new life skills. This focus led me to the Douglas County Juvenile Court System where she worked closely for the next six years helping at risk children. In 2011, her desire to help grew even further when she had her first child. This is also the year she decided to go to graduate school! Over the course of two and half years, she completed graduate school with her masters in Social Work, had another child, and quit working for the court system. Since 2013, Tiffinnei has been teaching tumbling on and off for First Baptist of Douglasville Impact Cheerleading. Working closely with children and helping them learn new and exciting skills in a variety of settings is something she is very passionate about. To say she is excited about working at Fever Performing Arts is an understatement!
