Overcoming Imposter Syndrome with Tiffany Gardner | Expert Episode

Listen to Episode 13

At one point or another, almost all of us have experienced feeling like an imposter. Through the interviews we have shared so far in this podcast, the topic of imposter syndrome has come up time and time again.

On this special (Not-so-mini) Expert  Episode, Catherine sits down with local financial sector leader (and our podcast sponsor), Tiffany Gardner, to talk about the different ways the imposter mindset has come up in her life and how she has worked to overcome them. Tiffany is the Senior VP Manager of Corporate and Commercial Banking at First Horizon Bank with a career in the financial sector that spans multiple decades of working with business owners to grow their operations.

Initially when Catherine approached Tiffany about having a discussion about this topic – Tiffany was very honest that she had never heard the term “imposter syndrome” but the minute she heard its definition, she knew immediately what it was. Being a woman in a male-dominated industry – especially at the leadership level, Tiffany has often found herself in roles and rooms where she was either the youngest, the only woman, or both.

Listen in as they discuss Tiffany’s own experiences with imposterism, how she has not let that interfere with growing in her career, why she loves what she does, and what she has learned along the way in becoming a leader in her industry. Their conversation is FILLED with so many insightful nuggets and pieces of advice for any woman leader.

If you are a woman in finance looking to connect with others in the industry or are a business owner searching for a banking relationship – we encourage you to connect with Tiffany and all of the other AMAZING women at First Horizon Bank who are passionate about supporting women.
