As a kid there were two things Tiffany always said over & over… she would never be a doctor and she would never live in Seattle (because of the rain). Boy was she wrong! While in her undergraduate studies she explored many paths ranging from pre-med, business communications and advertising. It wasn’t until her mid 20’s while on her own health journey that she fully came to understand the power of nature and the ability for the human body to heal from a root up approach. This is when she truly discovered her heart was in medicine and set out on her journey into Naturopathic Medicine.
Tiffany loves empowering, educating, and reconnecting patients to their inner wisdom- it feeds her soul and if you know her this is something you have heard her speak to time & time again. She is incredibly humbled by the teachings of the universe along with each and every patient that she is privileged to work with.
Tiffany’s Philosophy of Medicine
Tiffany’s approach with every patient addresses the mind, body, & spirit from a root cause(s) lens and where she starts within this model is always unique to each patient. That being said, this can sometimes be quite the medical puzzle, but that’s what she loves most about medicine. She believes the doctor: patient relationship should be a collaboration where she serves as a guide and you as an active participant in your healing journey. Tiffany wants every patient to not only attain effective results, but to build a life that leaves you feeling abundant, well, and resilient.
Tiffany is trained in both Naturopathic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine which allows for the merging of ancient & traditional wisdoms with modern science & research. Foundations are the starting place for every approach she takes in patient care and she will always reach for the least invasive therapies. She believes that connecting with our bodies, our food, our mind, our spirit, and mother nature are essential to living in harmony with all things within us and around us.
What she enjoys most about working in an integrative practice is that when needed she can bridge the gap with the brilliant providers & specialists at Village who might be a great addition to your team- this is where the magic happens. You are great alone, but even better together and she is so happy that you are here!

Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or night? Why?
Sunrise, there is such beauty in watching the transition from dark to light. It is when I feel most connected to nature.
If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?
That’s a hard one, I truly feel the best is yet to come. If I had to choose I’d say 8- I had endless energy, played outside with friends every day and was a bad ass lil gymnast.
Which is your favorite way to dance: with others or alone?
Both. I’m a big fan of the 5- minute dance party ANYWHERE, especially with my pup Binxie Smalls. Yes, I named him after a hip- hop legend with a tribute to the black cat Binx from my favorite childhood Halloween movie.
What superhero do you most resonate with and why?
Cat woman. Have you seen her full body leather cat suit??
If you were a vegetable, which one would you be and why?
Garlic. I love it so much that I entered a garlic eating contest when I was in my early 20’s. I lost, but I still consider myself the reigning queen and always accept a challenge to my throne 😉
If you were to geek out on something, what would you geek out on?
All things chemistry. That’s always at the top of my list, that and researching my next Halloween costume.
