Tiffany Rhodes brings a compassionate approach to tourism. Her humanitarian missions through war torn nations including Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda, Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, and Nicaragua spurred her realization that education changes the world and that travel and tourism can be the catalyst for such change. She advocates the pillars of tourism – economic impact, cultural preservation, and environmental conservation.

 Rhodes’ expertise in the travel and tourism industry has led her to more than 35 different countries around the world, as a leader, manager, and marketer of adventure travel, voluntourism, and ecotourism expeditions. She is an appointed academic affiliate to the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST) and was a reviewer of its landmark tourism industry study, "The Case for Responsible Travel: Trends & Statistics 2019." Rhodes is a member of the International Ecotourism Society and is a Certified Hospitality Educator (CHE).
