Tifhani Ischer Ristick

Founder, Chief Experience Officer

In the recruiting, consulting and coaching world since 2004, Tifhani has a passion for people and building teams that is palpable – you can feel it when you meet her. As the visionary CEO of the Collective, she strives to create and foster an environment where people are nurtured, seen, and effortlessly achieve their desired results. Her people-first mentality has garnered success throughout her career, growing and leading teams to massive success and single-handedly doubling growth with key business partners in various industries.

Today, she is proud to be building a team of talent superstars who are bringing new, innovative solutions and true partnerships to local and national companies.

When not in the office, Tifhani is probably at a vineyard somewhere with family and friends, taking a break, or going on a spontaneous adventure. Maybe it’s in beautiful Oregon, maybe it’s Scotland… who knows? A true believer in the magic of the universe, she counts herself among the lucky ones, blessed with 2 amazing children and a fantastic husband, and unbreakable bonds with family and her ever-expanding chosen framily (friend-family).

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is: ‘Love anyway’ & ‘Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t go to for advice.’ *My grandma also told me to ‘Be kind but always have the upper hand’.
What advice would you give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars? The work and team support here are reciprocal, so be passionate, curious and loving in all that you do. We are here to support one another, to grow and to achieve the balance of career fulfillment while also taking amazing breaks and vacations with the ones we love to fully enjoy the work we do and to keep our cups full and energy healthy.
