Tiffany McCollins. I was born and raised in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee, and outdoor recreation was a huge part of my upbringing. Fast-forward 30-plus years later, I am now a Certified Park and Recreation Professional. A graduate of North Carolina State University, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in interpersonal communication, and then moved on to the University of Memphis, earning a Master of Science degree in physical education teacher education. I started my career with the City of Memphis Parks & Neighborhoods in 2015 as director for the Douglass Community Center. It was there that I introduced creative and innovative programming strategies to a community with rich history. Possessing a continuous drive and a commitment to serve, I sought out opportunities for advancement because I knew I could make a broader impact for a larger group of people.
In 2017, I became a recreation program manager overseeing Section 8 community centers throughout the City of Memphis. In this role, I was responsible for managing payroll and establishing and maintaining working relationships with the media, as well as
networking with the public. Additionally, I ensured staff had adequate resources to perform in their designated job functions, and oversaw the execution of all youth and family programming. I served in this capacity through 2019, when an opportunity for advancement was afforded me and a promotion granted, naming me as the youth and family services administrator. I served in this role for four years, overseeing the operations of 24 community centers and approximately 200 staff members. Proudly accepting yet another promotion in January 2023, I was named the community center operations senior administrator; here I am currently responsible for the full operations of 30 facilities, including all 24 community centers and six senior services centers.
Working for Memphis Parks has afforded me numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth. I have been an active member of the TRPA Board of Directors since 2019. Serving in these capacities, I am thankful to share my part in making a difference statewide:
• Ethnic Minority Interest chair-elect, 2019
• Ethnic Minority Interest chair, 2020
• West District chair-elect, 2021
• West District chair, 2022
• Administration Branch chair-elect, 2023
• TRPA president nominee, 2023
As I continue to work for the “Best in Green,” my hope is that we can build a better Memphis through Positive, Community, Connection.
When I am not working, I am a devoted mother of two boys, ages 3 and 16. I enjoy coaching, playing sports, and vacationing when time permits.
