Updated: Jun 11

Meet Tiffany Elle Burgess, a dynamic force hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, who embodies the spirit of the South with her vibrant personality and unwavering passion for making a difference. In this exclusive interview with We Are Jersey, Tiffany shares her journey from being an introverted extrovert to becoming a powerhouse in both the public health sector and the creative industry.

Embracing Heritage and Passion

Tiffany's roots run deep in her Southern upbringing, where family and community are cherished values. Proud of her large Southern Black family, Tiffany's journey has been shaped by her experiences and her commitment to making a positive impact. From her days at MLK Magnet School, where she was immersed in health sciences and engineering, to pursuing a Master's in Public Health with a focus on Health Policy and Management from Emory University, Tiffany's trajectory was clear—she was destined to make a difference.


Driven by her passion for health equity and addressing issues that disproportionately affect African American communities, Tiffany has dedicated over 20 years to public health advocacy. Her empathy and determination stem from personal experiences, including witnessing her grandmother's struggle with diabetes, fueling her mission to empower marginalized communities to advocate for their health care needs.

Finding Voice Through Creativity

While Tiffany's professional journey in public health was fulfilling, her creative spirit yearned for expression. Drawing from her childhood love for writing, Tiffany found solace and empowerment in storytelling. From winning her first poetry contest at the age of seven to penning her children's book "Skin Like Mine," Tiffany's creative journey became a source of healing and inspiration. In 2015, tragedy struck with the passing of Tiffany's grandparents, prompting her to channel her grief into creativity. The result was her acclaimed children's book, "Skin Like Mine," which garnered attention in Essence magazine and propelled her into the world of writing and filmmaking.

Stepping Into the Spotlight

Transitioning from public health to the creative industry was a natural progression for Tiffany, who seized every opportunity to expand her horizons. Through collaborations with partners like Jack Manning III and Lawrence Wofford, Tiffany co-founded Tyler Street Films, a production company committed to diverse storytelling. Tiffany's versatility shines through in her roles as a writer, actor, and producer, exemplifying her dedication to amplifying underrepresented voices. From her debut short film "Flipped" to her recent role in "The Color Purple," Tiffany continues to break barriers and inspire others with her resilience and authenticity.

A Message of Peace and Unity

As Tiffany reflects on her journey, she shares a poignant message for the world—to embrace peace and unity amidst turmoil. Drawing from her own quest for inner peace, Tiffany advocates for collective harmony and resilience in the face of adversity.

In closing, Tiffany invites us to join her in spreading positivity and advocating for change, both on-screen and off-screen. With her unwavering spirit and commitment to making a difference, Tiffany Elle Burgess embodies the essence of resilience, creativity, and compassion.
