The Sway Team

When The Secret is in the Sauce (aka The SITS Girls) was founded in 2008, its objective was simple: To create a space where bloggers could find their tribe and grow their audience. The site has evolved over the years to become The Sway, but its commitment to this mission has not changed.

Here are just a few of the shiny, happy people behind The Sway:

Tiffany Romero and Family

The girl on the microphone at Sway Social. Also the one responsible for working on our influencer recruitment, ensuring that we have the influencers the client is looking for on each program.

Early on, Tiffany recognized the need for a blogger-based community and created what is now The Sway. 90,000 members strong and growing, the community is a cornerstone in the blogging world.

When not online, Tiffany keeps busy running a private Los Angeles summer camp with her husband and being a mama to her baby girl and teen boy.

Leah Leatherby and family

Leah Leatherby

Hi! My name is Leah Leatherby. I graduated from UC Davis with a BS in Textiles Marketing and Science. Since then, I have had two little ones; a 4 year old boy, and a 2 year old little girl. My life now consists of planning parties, baking cookies, and watching my kids. My husband has 75 first cousins alone, so we pretty much have an event every weekend! It keeps us busy, and lets me get my creative juices flowing.

Cynthia Wheeler

With two design degrees, and an unhealthy obsession with all things Adobe, Cynthia started her one stop shop for everything from blog design to custom illustration and logo creation 3 years ago. Over 100 blog designs later, and many late night dates with her Macbook Pro, NW Designs has become her full time job. As if that wasn’t enough, she also adds wife and mom of two to her list. You can find her chronicling the entire journey at her personal blog Nap…or check her out on Instagram!

Sway Group is managed by women who are passionate about blogging and social media and love to create resources for others to find support online and learn the skills they need to become social media savvy. To see our full team, head over to the Sway Group website.
