As Mrs. Wisconsin 2016, Tiffany serves as a national spokesperson for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), an organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of American’s affected by mental illness.

She serves as a presenter for In Our Own Voice (Veterans & Adults), Sharing Hope (African Americans), and Ending the Silence (Middle & High School Students).

She has a heart for children especially those dealing with a medical condition. She is a 7 year volunteer and advocate for the Ronald McDonald House and Children’s Hospital. These children are what inspired her to create her foundation, It’s Your Day.” The foundation honors sick children giving them a themed day they won’t forget and allowing them to be a regular kid.
Tiffany resides in the Racine area with her husband Robert, and their two boys: Maksimilian and Alexander. Tiffany is a graduate of Marquette University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Criminology.
