The Marion County Development Commission (MCDC) recently presented Tiffany Van Zante, Vice President of Geetings, Inc., with one of the Top 10 Under 40 awards. The MCDC created these awards to honor young professionals and share their stories to inspire others.

Recently, the commission presented Van Zante with an award to mark this achievement. Energetic is the one word Van Zante used to best describe her. She is a native of Marion County and attended Pella High School, receiving her college degree from University of Phoenix.

“The best part of working in Marion County is being able to work with and learn from fellow entrepreneurs. Having been born into a family of entrepreneurs, I have nothing but respect for local small and large businesses that were founded on these principles,” Van Zante stated. “The spirit of entrepreneurship is alive in Marion County and I am proud to live in a community where individuals are encouraged to pursue their individual dreams and passions.”

As part of the process for identifying outstanding young professionals, the MCDC also looked at community service. Van Zante has been involved over the years with the Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa, Leadership Council for the National Federation of Independent Business, South Central Satellite of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Marion County Cattlemen, Marion County Republican Party, Marion County Habitat for Humanity and is a Leadership Red Rock graduate.

“The best part of living in Marion County is knowing that I am raising my children in an environment that promotes education, hard work, family and community support that is based on Christian values and principles. Individuals in Marion County possess strong Midwestern ethics and values as well as an unbridled sense of community, which is what I strive to teach my children. What better place to live than surrounded by those who hold these same core values,” Van Zante explained.
