Tinsley will join us all the way from the state of Washington and use her years of experience in higher education to lead the girls in learning ways to gather a support group for coping with stress and anxiety!
Tinsley Hembree comes from a background in higher education and has translated those skills into a career as the Recruitment Marketing Manager at Fisher Investments. In this role, she develops the global university recruitment strategy and manages student programs and events. Her previous experiences mentoring students, advising student organizations and managing fraternity and sorority life have led to a positive impact on the Firm’s internship program, campus relationships, and student leadership initiatives. Bringing the student and campus perspective to a finance firm to cultivate change motivates Tinsley in her efforts to expand the global campus strategy to ultimately connect with students to launch the next chapter of their lives.

Geography: Born and educated in Cape Town, lived in London, moved to Cambridge for love, Now I live in a 18th century thatched cottage with beams you can hit your head on and wonky walls and nowhere to hang any more paintings
Beliefs as an artist: Everyone is creative, making art is playing and taking risks, we have to unlearn a lot of nonsense we’ve absorbed about our creativity, we have to resist the pressure to be like everyone else, we have to stop comparing ourselves to others, I can’t paint like Picasso but, much more importantly, he couldn’t paint like me
What makes me happy: Puppies, putting on lipstick even though I’ll be wearing a mask, seeing empathy and imagination in the world, flowers, gasp-making colour combinations, people who are curious
