Dr. Tiffany is an experienced Integrative & Functional Medicine physician, dedicated to educating and empowering her patients to live dynamic and optimally healthy lives.
Dr. Tiffany received her doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University. Prior to her medical education, she worked in clinical research, managing both national and international investigational clinical trials for Medtronic and Roche. Although she recognized medical advancements to be imperative, it became apparent to her that every individual has a different story and a unique set of factors (social, physical, environmental, spiritual, nutritional, genetic, and mental/emotional) that influence how he or she manifests symptoms or disease. Thus, she became increasingly interested in educating and empowering patients to make long-term and sustainable lifestyle changes to restore health.
After medical school, she completed a family medicine residency at Cascade Integrative Medicine. Dr. Tiffany currently practices at SageMED in Bellevue, WA.
