This is a rare kind of author and speaker: one that comes from a place of experience rather than theory. Please check out Tiffany's blog for a more personal account of her life. If you are on facebook, please be sure to "friend" her and follow her travels and daily musings!
I learned so much from her; I feel so fortunate to have been here.
I think that the presentation was AMAZING and even though advance care planning is something I do almost daily, I learned a lot of information.
Tiffany is fantastic! She keeps things moving and interesting; the audience was captivated.
Tiffany was inspiring, motivating, interesting and very hilarious!
Probably the best lecture we’ve ever had in med school.
Thank you for your presentation today. It was a life-changing experience for me personally and professionally.
Tiffany has found her “purpose”. I found this presentation one of the most powerful ever!!
