Tiffany worked in the schools in Texas and at Memorial Hospital as a Nurse’s Assistant and in Patient Access in Colorado Springs before moving up north. She has worked as a teacher in the northern part of Colorado teaching Special Education for 6 years. After relocating back to Colorado Springs in 2015, she decided to change career paths and work more in the social work field and began working with the Resource Exchange and with another PASA in the area running a Day Program and helping expand services from the Denver/Aurora area down into the Colorado Springs area. When the opportunity came up to help expand services for United Providers, Tiffany was happy to offer assistance to a company that she thought would do well in this area.
