Tiffany developed a passion for caring for others at a young age and had a dream of becoming a nurse as a young child. She took a clinical rotation class in high school that further fueled aspiration to become a healthcare provider.
Immediately after high school Tiffany began her journey into the nursing profession. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Baylor University in 2005. After college graduation, she moved to Scottsdale, AZ where she began her nursing career in the Trauma ICU, Neuro ICU and ER. She and her husband then moved to the beautiful island of Oahu where she accepted a job in a combined Adult and Pediatric ICU at Tripler Army Medical Center. During her time at Tripler, she helped to develop the Rapid Response Team, created and taught the neurological course for the hospital nursing staff and was on the air evacuation transport team. Her last 2 years at Tripler were spent working in the pediatric ICU, neonatal ICU and the pediatric sedation center.
She graduated from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa with her Master in Science while completing the Family Nurse Practitioner Program in 2013. Tiffany is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
She has always had a desire for working with under-served communities, which led her to work at Kalihi Palama Health Center in Kalihi, Hawai’i. There she worked in adult medicine, pediatrics and women’s health care providing holistic care to a very complex and diverse population. It was during this time that she developed a true appreciation for homeopathic and herbal healing, as many of her patients valued this type of health care approach.
After having her first daughter in 2009 and facing opposition in the workplace to breastfeed, she made it her mission to bring attention to the health benefits that are derived from breastfeeding for both mom and baby. In 2011, she and four other women wrote and proposed amendments to the already written legislation that would better protect and provide more rights to breastfeeding moms in the workplace. She also became a board member of the Breastfeeding Hawai’i Coalition, continued to advocate for breastfeeding rights and provided education through community outreach. In August 2013, she was honored to be part of a small group of women who sat in Governor Neil Abercrombie’s suite while he signed into legislation the very bill (S.B. 532) that she had helped to write.
After working at the community health center in Hawai'i and watching so many of her patients truly heal through natural remedies she knew that this was the type of medicine that was in her heart to practice. She moved back to Texas and began practicing in integrative pediatrics in 2014. Tiffany worked at Shine Pediatrics for 8 years. During this time she was able to implement natural remedies to help many children who were suffering from chronic illness, nutritional deficiencies, ADHD and other health concerns.
Tiffany was married in 2006 to her husband and best friend. They first met as neighborhood kids when she was 7 years old and were best friends growing up. They have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters.
Tiffany is excited to be back in the community in which she was raised and where she found her passion to devote her life to providing care to others.
