Tiffany was born in the faraway magical state of Florida, or so she has been told. She moved to the west as a wee bairn and pretty much stayed there. Her long strange trip has taken her through California, Oregon and Washington, with a brief stint in New York City. In the process, she has taken on jobs ranging from typer of obituaries (and other things) for a weekly newspaper, to the editor of a small magazine about converting buses, to adjunct composition instructor at a variety of institutions. An occasional work of creative writing was published. Finally, in 2017, she accomplished one of her #lifegoals: earning a Ph.D.
Tiffany's research interests include (but are certainly not limited to) the relationships among gender, race, sexuality, dis/ability, and body size in popular culture. Her most recent work has focused on the functions of narrative and folklore in the maintenance of dominant forms of masculinity in disaster preparedness culture. She is a social justice bard.
Tiffany has several personal interests, most of them obsessive. These include writing, singing, gaming, "geek" popular culture (science fiction and in particular anything to do with the apocalypse), animals, and the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Currently she is working on a "novel-like" manuscript in addition to her teaching at SVC.
