Tiffany Stewart /Development Consultant & Grant Writer

Tiffany joined the DWS team in June of 2021. She is the CEO of BirthWrite Consulting Group and is a writer who has helped many with their writing needs. Equipped with degrees from both Howard & Harvard University, Tiffany’s writing has been featured in multi-million dollar companies and in grants that have resulted in multi-million dollar funding. Tiffany uses her gift of writing to help others use their voice without losing it through guidance on writing a book, grant writing, copy & proofreading, along with curriculum writing.

Becoming a writer truly opened her eyes to the power of stories. Before becoming a writer, Tiffany says she had a story but wasn’t the one writing it. The literal and figurative action of picking up the pen is when things changed for her.

She’s an educator turned entrepreneur who had a successful career in education working with NYC public schools and decided she wanted to work for herself. She is also the Founder of The Educator’s Promise. A nonprofit organization focused on education equity. A woman of many ideas, Tiffany says her first passion is in writing. She is the author of two books, “Jewels From a Black Diamond” and “No Saving Me for Later.” 

Her work is meant to inspire, heal and motivate people to live life with purpose.
