Tiffany Mensah is the Executive Director of DOVES Network and author of the book, Forgotten: Living in the Shadows of Domestic Violence. She has spent the last decade healing, uncovering, and studying the impact and trauma effects of growing up in a home with Domestic Violence, while also obtaining her Trauma-Informed Certification.
Tiffany has fastly become a voice for domestic violence recovery for children. Tiffany, is not only a marketing maverick, a title that she gained through her thirteen plus years of corporate experience in Marketing, Advertising, Project Management. But she is a survivor, who has committed her life to break the cycles of domestic violence, and the effects it has on the children and adults who have lived through the turmoil.
While a success story on the outside, in her personal and professional life, Tiffany was met with roadblock after roadblock that began to reveal to her that while she had titles, accolades, and credentials there was a great part of her that needed much work. "A lot of times you see the end result, without seeing the path there", Tiffany uncovered in her memoir. While a success story now, Tiffany is most proud of the internal and spiritual work she's done to address the childhood trauma, and PTSD, she experienced growing up in a home plagued by domestic violence, and even in dating relationships as an adult. This work fueled her purpose to self-publish her memoir, along with launching DOVES Network, so that other children and adults get equipped with the tools of healing to rewrite their narrative.
Tiffany has a heart to ensure awareness and healing resources are provided to communities of color. Along with ensuring that faith based churches and leaders are equipped with the tools and community resources to help shine the light on this dark topic while caring for their congregations.
Tiffany is beyond blessed to have married her best friend, love of her life, business, and ministry partner, AJ Mensah. They have two adult daughters; Kyra and Andrea, and furbaby, Shadow.
