Tishin is a graduate of Arizona State University and serves as a mentor for ASU Entrepreneurship program, startups and venture capital firms around the southwest. She also holds a Master’s degree in Clinical & Sport Psychology graduating Cum Laude. If you don’t catch her out in the community, best guess she’s trying to find some way to get to the beach and surf. In the office, you’ll hear a healthy dose of music-everything from the 80s to J.T. In her spare time, which isn’t much, she volunteers with her therapy dog Lilly, a yellow lab, with Pets on Wheels Scottsdale. Follow Tishin at: @TishinD
