Tiffany Peters works as the Vice President of Finance at the United Way of Summit & Medina. Before its merger with United Way of Summit & Medina in 2018, she was the Chief Financial Officer at Info Line, Inc. She was born and raised in the Akron area, and her family took a sabbatical from Ohio weather for 11 years to Florida, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Finance from Florida State University and her Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of South Florida with concentrations in Finance, Management, and Information Systems. She returned to the Akron area in 2002, after missing her extended family and the Akron area community during her time away.
During her 22-year career, Tiffany has worked in both the private and public accounting sectors. After 6 years of private accounting experience for the staffing and manufacturing industries, she spent 10 years in public accounting, performing financial analysis, forecasting, and financial modeling for numerous industries and for tax and litigation matters. She also holds the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) designation.
In addition to her professional pursuits, Tiffany has been active in the community, serving on boards and committees such as the Young Professionals of Akron, the Battered Women’s Shelter, the Rape Crisis Center, and former Community Investment Teams at the United Way of Summit & Medina. When approached with the opportunity to make a career of nonprofit finance in 2015, she embraced the mission-focused work and has been working tirelessly to be a good steward of public funds ever since. Tiffany was one of the 2014 recipients of the 30 for the Future award through the Greater Akron Chamber, and her greatest takeaway from the experiences leading up to this honor is how serving the community, your colleagues, and your loved ones is at the top of the list of life’s best growth opportunities.
Her husband, her two kids, and her very large family are her favorite supporters and cheerleaders. Spending time traveling, watching them play sports, and playing board games with them are her favorite pastimes.
