Communications and Marketing Manager
Tatyerra Spurlock, Rising Tide Capital’s Communications and Marketing Manager, learned in high school that she had a passion for PR. She combined that with her love for community service and it shaped her plan for the future. She graduated from Ball State University with a BS in Public Relations in Spring 2015. During her time there she served in a variety of leadership roles including president of her undergraduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., where she planned and executed numerous service projects that impacted both the campus and community.
She’s also held six internships that taught her skills she used during her time with RTC as an AmeriCorps VISTA. After her service ended she was hired as full time staff in her current role, where she is responsible for graphic design and social media management. Tatyerra’s proudest accomplishment to date was graduating as a first generation college student in her family.
A graduate of RTC’s Community Business Academy, Tatyerra plans to continue her career in the nonprofit sector, and continues to assist her family to grow their businesses in Chicago where she was born and raised. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, journaling and visiting with family and friends.
