  • Tiffany started off in fire on the Los Padres in 1987, 2 seasons on the Pozo Engine Crew, 3 seasons on Arroyo Grande Helitack. In 1992, Tiffany delved into the natural resource side by working as a hydro tech, first on the Gifford Pinchot NF (R6 Packwood RD), then on the Tahoe NF. During the time on the Tahoe, Tiffany started to hone her computer skills while applying them effectively for natural resources, especially in GIS, GPS and database applications. Before landing a position with AMSET in 2001, she worked at the R5 Remote Sensing Lab and in R3 Santa Fe SO as a GIS Specialist.
