Before joining the PUPP staff, Tieisha was an Assistant Dean of Admissions and a member of the Diversity Team at Pomona College in California. She also worked as a College Adviser at E-Cubed Academy in Providence, RI through the Brown University College Advising Corps and AmeriCorps. Tieisha is Trenton native and a graduate of the PUPP Cohort of 2009 and was the valedictorian of her Trenton Central High School graduating class. A Gates Millennium Scholar, Tieisha earned her B.A. in Urban Studies with a specialization in Education from Columbia University, where she was also a Kluge Scholar.
