MnCCC Spotlight: Tiffany Ahearn

MnCCC Spotlight Tiffany Ahearn, Blue Earth County

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Tiffany Ahearn. I have four kids including a 21-year old step son, 12-year old twin boys, and a 9 year old daughter. I keep busy running my kids to their various activities, but also enjoy reading, cooking, watching our MN sports teams, and getting a good workout in. 

What was your first job?

I grew up in a small town in southern Minnesota where my first job was at the local grocery store, where I worked as a cashier and in the deli. Shortly after that I earned my CNA license and worked at the local nursing home for three years as a Nurse’s Aide. 

What is your role with Blue Earth county?

I just started my 10th year at Blue Earth County, where almost 9 years were spent as an IT Business Analyst in the IT department, working primarily with property tax and appraisal, as well as the finance and payroll system. I recently moved to Human Services where I am now the Information & Support Supervisor, supervising seven support staff, and working with IT on our project management platform. 

What interests you about MnCCC?

I have been involved with MnCCC for over 9 years where in my previous role, I was the Chair and ISSG Liaison of the Aumentum Tax User Group. Currently, I am the Recording Officer for both the ISSG and Human Services user groups. MnCCC has given me so many opportunities to meet other county staff, collaborate with other organizations that are facing the same problems we are, and to grow my leadership skills by participating in the various user groups. I have learned a TON over the years through my involvement in MnCCC and would encourage everyone to get involved! I have made lifelong friends that I met through MnCCC so am also thankful for that.

What is something on your bucket list?

My family loves to travel; each year we try and visit some place new. My kids have already visited 40 states so part of my bucket list is to get my family to all 50 states before they graduate high school. I only have seven states to go, myself!
