Tiffany joined the SLS Board of  Trustees in 2013 and currently serves on the Executive and Governance Committees; is a Co-Chair of the Momentum Campaign Steering Committee and a member of the Board’s Calendar Task Force.
Prior to joining the St. Luke’s community, Tiffany was involved in meaningful ways in her children’s previous schools. She co-chaired the inaugural and second gala fundraisers for Tokeneke School in Darien. She served on the Playground building committee working with the Parent-Teacher Organization and the Darien Board of Education. And, she’s been a room mother for too many years to count. While living overseas, she was also heavily involved with her children’s schools and was elected to serve as the VP, Ways and Means for the American School in London’s Parent’s Organization before moving back to the U.S. in 2005.
Tiffany is also involved with another St. Luke’s community - St. Luke’s Parish in Darien.  A former Youth Ministry Liaison, Tiffany has chaired several fundraisers for the youth mission trips to Lewiston, ME and Cass Lake, MN - trips both Jay and Cate participate in each year. 
Tiffany graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism with a minor in French. She worked in the public relations field in both Chicago and New York City before leaving the industry to stay at home with her children.  She lives in Darien with her husband Brian and is the proud mother to three children, Maddie (‘13); Jay (‘15) and Cate (‘18).
