Tenise McCoy

Senior Security and Operations Specialist

Tenise takes care of the security and compliance aspects of the business operations team across all three studios. 

Prior to joining IDEO.org, she served as program analyst at the New York State's Department of Homeland Security and Emergency services—as analyst, she focused on how the everyday citizen may be empowered to help mitigate against future attacks of active shooters and terrorist organizations.

Tenise holds master’s degree in international relations and Diplomacy from Seton Hall University with a focus on international security. Despite the seriousness of her role, she’s a 'good vibes only' kind of girl. When she’s not at work, you can find her on a girls night out or at home alone planning the next one.
