Born and raised just south of Calgary, Tiffany's passion for the game became very evident at a young age. After a self-rewarding junior career, and growing up around the golf industry, a career in golf was the natural path. After graduating from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology with a Business Diploma, her PGA career began.
Starting at Cottonwood in July of 1990 in the golf shop and acquiring her PAT in 1991, her commitment to Cottonwood and the team only grew. Tiffany gained her Class A Status in 1996, she assumed the role of Head Professional in 1997 and took on the challenge of management from 2001 - 2017. The education, mentorship, and support she was given has helped to mold and shape her career today.
After 27 years at Cottonwood Golf and Country Club as Head Professional, Executive Professional, and General Manager, Tiffany embarked on a new platform in Business Development, Industry Leadership, Instructing and Coaching. She continues to work diligently on developmental programs and grow the game initiatives with her TAG Pro Golf Programs, Golf Schools for Women ,and recently the addition of the Jerry Miller 5 Wood Foundation for Junior Golf Development.
Her passion for instruction, mentorship, and her desire to play a role in encouraging students to enjoy the game, has helped to build her new platform. After instructing with the Team at the Golf Channel Golf Academy at Heritage Pointe as well as the Head Teaching Professional at the Blue Devil Golf Academy and Lil Devil Learning Academy over the last year she has landed at the Carnmoney Golf Club, a Private Golf Facility just south of Calgary. She will oversee Clubhouse Operations, Membership Opportunities and Experiences along with continuing her passion for encouraging, and growing the game from an exclusive membership facility.
Tiffany takes great pride in those she works with and her Association. She has had an opportunity to be involved in many aspects of the industry. Her involvement with the Board of the PGA has become a priority which she enjoys as a past member of the PGA of Alberta and a current Director with the PGA of Canada. Tiffany has a commitment to many Associations including Golf Canada as a committee member of the Hall of Fame Committee and currently sits on the Board for Alberta Golf as Secretary.
Involvement with numerous charities, she finds time to give back. Her commitment to Kids Cancer Care, Cystic Fibrosis, Sick Kids Hospital, and Calgary Children's Hospital, and various charities.
