NY Creative Interns Conference Speaker Highlight: Tammy Tibbetts, Founder and President of She’s the First

We’re excited to announce another amazing speaker added to our line up for Finding and Following Your Passion on April 21, 2012. Meet Tammy Tibbetts, Founder and President of She’s the First.

 After graduating as a journalist from The College of New Jersey in 2007, Tammy had the unusual opportunity to “re-do” her teen years, starting her career as the prom web site editor for Seventeen, CosmoGIRL, and Teen, brands of the Hearst Corporation. Talk about irony: Growing up, Tammy was voted Most Shy in her high school yearbook and didn’t go to one school dance (but got really good grades!). At Hearst, she created programs like the Ultimate Prom concert and the charitable DonateMyDress.org campaign. In her day job, she reaches millions of teens every day as the social media voice of Seventeen. Under her leadership, Seventeen became the first teen magazine to reach 1 million Facebook fans and its Twitter account also had the fastest growth of any magazine in the industry.

We have tons more to share with you, so check back often for new announcements. Head to our conference site for more details. You’ll meet amazing professionals like Tammy, and make great friends and future collaborators.

If you had a chance, what would you ask Tammy? Check out her Twitter, or let us know in the comments.
