Tiffany Davis knows how important it is to remain fresh and adventurous, particularly on the career front. “I grew up in a very conservative family, as families of color tend to be, and I was good in creative fields like writing and drawing, but that was never encouraged. I was geared toward science and academic pursuits, but when I got jobs in corporate America, I was miserable,” she tells That’s So Very Vanessa host Vanessa Bell Calloway. After college, I was on track to become a doctor, but I was never really happy with that. So I got a job in medical publishing. Then I moved into being an analyst at a non-profit, but got laid off. That’s when I said, I refuse to work for anyone else. So I was home one day watching the Food Network and I saw an ad for the Culinary Institute of America. And I liked to cook so I applied and not only got in but got a scholarship. Within two years, I was running the kitchen in a four-star restaurant in Miami.”
