Tiffany, breads a wealth of federal political astuteness, longevity, and commitment. She began her professional career in 2005 working for then United States Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin. In 2013, Tiffany joined, now United States Senator Tammy Baldwin’s Senate staff in Milwaukee, a rare feat to serve in both chambers of the United States Congress for minority federal government employees.  Presently, Tiffany serves as the Milwaukee Office Director for U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin.

As MULYP President, she is both equipped and enthusiastic to stand in partnership with  our Milwaukee Urban League, National Urban League Young Professionals and the entire Milwaukee Executive Leadership Team in being the Brand Manager for MULYP. Tiffany is eager to bring her passion and commitment of service to our Membership by continuing to build and brand the organization, identifying and developing leaders, engaging the community in advocacy, and empowering our membership and impacting the Milwaukee community. Tiffany is mission driven to be impactful, intentional and vocal in advocating for those who are not heard or represented in an ever changing climate, and she is vision focused that when voices are heard the next generation is EMPOWERED!

When she is not working or volunteering her time, she enjoys reading, traveling, is an avid sports fan, spending time with her family and friends, and relishing over a great pair of heels!

Michelle Brown

Vice-President 

Michelle began her membership with the Milwaukee  Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) chapter in 2012.   Michelle has proven her leadership and dedication by attending all MULYP and activities. Prior to her role as Vice-President, Michelle served as the chapter's Treasurer and Parliamentarian and past Community Service Chair, a role that saw an increase in our involvement to aid service-based agencies and organizations. She stood ready to stand in the gap when our chapter mid-year found ourselves without a key person to fill the elected role of Treasurer. Michelle took on this role without hesitation.

Michelle is a financial member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, and presently serves as the Treasurer for the Milwaukee Alumnae Chapter, a legacy national organization.  Her sense of detail, reporting, and knowledge of organizational protocol and duties has allowed our chapter to streamline our communication and processes with the Milwaukee Urban League, to proudly meet our 2018-2019 goal of donating $10,000 to the affiliate during their 100th Year Anniversary.

Serving in dual leadership capacity showed her personal commitment to the work she does inside and out of the MULYP.   She prides herself on hard work, service, engaging others, and ensuring that our chapter is mindful of being intentional in our giving.

Michelle maintains her commitment to MULYP all while keeping up with the high demands of her professional job in the role of Health, Safety, and Security Manager for Veolia Water Milwaukee, LLC which operates and maintains the regional wastewater treatment system for Milwaukee County.  Her employment with Veolia has allowed her the opportunity to showcase her leadership skills and professional knowledge by teaching and providing training and standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to aid the staff of the Milwaukee Urban League in remaining compliant with the federal government.

Michelle is a native of Evansville, Indianapolis. She is a 2006 graduate of the Indiana State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science with a concentration on Occupational Health and Safety.
