From 2009-2016, Ms. Stiff was the training and professional development manager at the Florida State Board of Administration, where she designed curriculum, facilitated workshops and analyzed organizational needs. From 2005 to 2007, she contributed her skills as an editor for the Herald-Tribune Media Group in Sarasota, Fla, coaching her staff to handle articles in print, broadcast, and online. Additionally, Ms. Stiff imparted her knowledge to students at historically black Florida A&M University, where she was assistant professor and placement and internship director.
