Tiffany Lutterman Busby, President
In 2000, Tiffany founded Wildwood Consulting after serving as the Director of the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program (NEP) and as the manager of the Georgia Coastal Management Program. She saw the need for a specialized firm that could support federal, state and local governments and agencies as they implemented restoration projects.
These efforts often involved multiple agencies, citizens, universities, the private sector and specialists who needed assistance with tracking and coordinating joint projects. One example is the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) program. As collaborative efforts expanded, Tiffany supported the committees, agencies, and stakeholders involved with modeling, development of pollutant load allocations, policy development and implementation through facilitation and conflict resolution assistance. Tiffany continues to support complex decision-making processes and implementation of programs and projects.
Tiffany has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management from Duke University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin. Tiffany is a Past President of the Florida Stormwater Association and their past Chair of Legislative and Governmental Relations. Tiffany is also a Certified Facilitator through the University of Miami.
