At continued, we have a team that is more like a family. What’s our common DNA? A willingness to collaborate, high levels of motivation, an appreciation for others, creative thinking, and a passion for lifelong learning. Get to know our family member Tiffany Grant and how she illustrates the six sides to our story.
Grant has spent her career in education and previously held positions at Hood College and Arcadia University in the areas of admissions, financial aid, and adult degree programs. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Hood College and also has a thanatology certificate.
Grant lives in a suburb of Philadelphia with her husband, David, and their 2-year-old daughter, Mackenzie.
What led you to continued, and what do you like best about your job?
I spent 13 years in higher education admissions roles and was passionate about helping others find the best education to suit their needs and fulfill their aspirations. After my daughter was born and I returned to work, I quickly realized I wanted a different work–life fit and started looking for remote career opportunities, which led me to continued. After talking with [VP of Sales, Career & Educational Services] Wendy Bradbury, it became abundantly clear that this role was a great fit for me.
Finding this position with continued was a “pinch me” experience because it has allowed me to maintain my professional drive and my desire to contribute to the education field while also being an in-tune and present mother and wife.
I like the autonomy I’m given and that I am trusted to do my job well, and I appreciate the challenge this job has offered by working in an area of the company that is new, but rapidly growing. I also love being remote, as it has allowed me to have a much better work–life balance.

What makes you most proud to work for continued?
I am proud to work for a company that really does provide meaningful change for its customers and clients. I believe in what we do and know I am selling a quality product that is going to benefit our members.
I’m also proud to work for a company that is about more than just numbers. We are a company full of people who value people first.
What do you like most about where you live?
The Philadelphia area means so much to us and is full of family, love, good eating, and church family. My husband and I both have huge families in the area—I have 80 first cousins, and my husband’s side of the family is equally enormous. Family is what matters most to us, which is why I took this job.
This area is also rich with culture, and there’s so much good food in Philly. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

What book has had the biggest impact on your life?
The Bible has served as my life's guide. This book is unlike any other I've read because it challenges me to do better, provides peace when I'm rattled, and has helped me make good choices—like applying to continued.
