She began her career at the age of 23 in local politics, working on various campaigns throughout the Central Valley and the South Bay Area. She became an organizer in the labor movement and moved to the non-profit sector, advocating for affordable health care and living wages for working families. She transitioned to New York City to attend school and worked in corporate finance for several years before starting her own management firm in the music industry. After 12 years of a successful career, she relocated to Salt Lake City, UT to lead another pivotal non-profit as an Executive Director, connecting diverse communities to available resources through entertainment, policy, and advocacy.
“Throughout my career, I have thrived not only through my own passion to serve my community, but because of my roots and my own parent’s work ethic in the fields of the Central Valley and always advocating for what was right. I have also had many women and mentors, create a space for me by opening doors of opportunity. It is our responsibility and privilege to continue this work and I couldn’t think of a better place to be and more critical work to move forward.” – Tiffany Ente, SWHCC President & CEO
