Tiffany joined the KLCC News team in 2007. She studied journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia and worked in a variety of media including television, technical writing, photography and daily print news before moving to the Pacific Northwest.

As a life long public radio enthusiast, Tiffany has contributed to KLCC with reports on health, education, social justice, environmental issues and local and regional news.

In 2008, she became a staff co-host on KLCC’s award-winning news magazine, Northwest Passage, with News Director Tripp Sommer.

In 2011, Tiffany produced the 20th Anniversary program finale which featured every past co-hosts’ outro over two decades, which were retrieved from recordings on cassette tapes. Later that year, she joined Tripp to inaugurate KLCC’s local, mid-day program, News at Noon.

Tiffany’s reporting has been recognized as part of the KLCC News team's Edward R. Murrow Overall Excellence awards annually from 2019-2023. She’s won individual writing and reporting awards from Society of Professional Journalists, Oregon Associated Press, Public Media Journalists Association (formerly PRNDI,) Education Writers Association, among others.

For Tiff, the good life is spending time with her husband, son and the rest of her lovin’ family and friends. She adores traveling, singing, seeing epic concerts, growing things, and hearing really good jokes.

Tiffany has a cool cat and a Boston Terrier named Buckminster. And then there’s that bit about her never saying no to a fresh picked tomato…
