Valley City State University is a beautiful place. But more than that, the university is its people. In the next few months from time to time we want to introduce you to a few of our faculty and staff that are new to the campus and/or to the community. Kim Hesch has provided editorial for these features.

This week’s profile features Tiffany Hieb, Administrative Assistant for the Foundation and Advancement office.

Tiffany is a native of Valley City. She attended Valley City State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems from VCSU in December 2002.

Describe a book, person, or experience that has had a major impact on you as a person or a professional. My family has had the biggest impact on me as both a person and a professional. The values and ethics that have been taught and demonstrated by them have shaped the individual I have evolved into. I am truly blessed to have had such a great family to serve as my role models and mentors over all the years.

What leisure time activities do you enjoy? I enjoy photography, reading, working out and dancing.

Name the most unique item in your refrigerator? The most unique item in my refrigerator actually isn’t even food, its film. If you buy many rolls of film at one time, but don’t intend to use them right away, I’ve been told you are supposed to store them in a cool place, such as the refrigerator. So they’ve got their own little storage spot in my fridge.

What do you like most about your job? The thing I enjoy most about my job would have to be the great team of people I directly interact with on a daily basis. They are intelligent, energetic, hardworking and they make work fun.

If you won $50,000 in the lottery, how would you spend it? I’m quite a thrifty spender, so this is actually a difficult question. I would most likely spend a portion of it on a new car. I would use another portion to take my closest friends on vacation. We’re spread out across the country and don’t have the opportunity to all get together very often. And honestly, who wouldn’t go on vacation if they won the lottery! Any remaining money from my win would probably go into savings or investments. It’s always nice to have a little extra money around just in case.

What advice for success would you give to students at VCSU? My advice for students at VCSU is to get involved! There are a wide variety of organizations and activities to partake in. Being involved helps build many skills and traits such as leadership, interpersonal communication, delegation, and responsibility, at a more accelerated rate than a classroom setting can often provide. The experience gained will help benefit you not only in the work force, but also in your every day life.
