Biography

Tiffany grew up in a home with a large family, all musically gifted, watching old Rogers & Hammerstein collections and singing 1950s rock & roll tunes with her family's band at holiday and county gigs.

She is an accomplished classical pianist along with her singing and dancing talents and has training in teaching and technique as well as performance.

After graduating from high school, she decided to change her focus from being a basic song & dance girl to studying psychology, until a well-intentioned music teacher told her she was wasting her time and needed to pursue music. She desided he was right and began to pursue becoming a serious student of musical theatre.

She performed for two years in various summer stock and community theatre prodcutions. After receiving a scholarship to BYU in Music Dance Theatre, she headed to Osaka, Japan as a member of the opening cast of the new Universal Studios theme park, where she also met her future husband. She performed as the lead female singer in the most popular show there, 5 shows a day, 5 nights a week, for a year.

Upon finishing her contract and reurning to the states, she performed various lead roles in Community and Regional theatres while continuing to pursue her education at BYU. Some of those roles include: Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun; Eve in Children of Eden; Ti Moune in Once On This Island; Mayzie La Bird in Seussical; Lola in Damn Yankees; Polly in Crazy for You; and Lead Vocalist as well as music direction in Smokey Joe's Cafe' and Swing!.

Aside from her pursuits as a performer, she also has a deep passion for behind-the-scenes work as a music director and choreographer. She taught high school choir for a year while still in college, where she took on the responsibility of 3 madrigals chamber concert choirs, directing and choreographing the advanced show choir, teaching music appreciation, and directing the music and choreography for the 2 school productions.

She completed her Music Dance Theater BFA degree in April of 2005. On a trip to NYC with her graduating class, she was offered 2 professional opportunities by Dave Clemmons casting; one being a national tour and another, an off-broadway production.

However, she had just found out she was pregnant and had to put her pursuits on the back burner for the time-being.

An opportunity arose again in 2006 when she auditioned for Wicked at the Pantages in LA, but after a few callbacks for the role of Elphaba, she realized she still couldn't give up her job as a mother to her little girl.

... and she is now pregnant again, excited to continue the blessing of motherhood... although the audiences are a bit smaller and somewhat less willing to applaud then she's used to.
