Tiffanie is a mother of two. She has been involved in advocacy since the age of sixteen, starting with children in the special needs and disability community. Her first adult job was with a company that advocated for children, within the schools, and worked to implement effective therapy techniques in the home. Working with various populations has taught her the one truth that matters when it comes to equity and equality: There is no equality for one, unless there is equality for all; anything else is the extension of privilege. She has worked very hard to be involved in the schools, and is proud to be a member of the Saline Area School's DEI Advisory Committee.
