Meet Tiffany! One of our new and fabulous front desk coordinators!

 1. Where are you from?
My family is all originally from Florida, but I have lived in St. Louis, Kansas, Arizona and California before moving to Texas.

2. Tell us about your family?
I have been married to my husband Craig for 19 years and together for 24 years.  We met at the end of college.  We have three boys.  Ethan is a Senior at Plano West and will be headed off to college at San Diego State the fall of 2016.  Matthew is 15 and goes to Jasper High School.  Charlie is 11 and is in 6th grade at Rice Middle school.

3. Where did you attend school?
I graduated from The University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas.  I have a Bachelor of General Studies in Communications.

4. What do you like to do in your spare time/hobbies?
In my spare time I like to bake, read and run.  My favorite thing is spending time with my family, especially now that my son is leaving for college soon.  We have a red heeler dog that I enjoy taking on my runs with me.

5. Favorite book?
Favorite movies of all time are Gone with The Wind and The Sound of Music.  There are too many good books to pick a favorite!

 7. What’s something you are passionate about?
I am passionate about my family and keeping us all healthy.

8. What are some things you are involved in (ie church, community etc)?
Recently we have been involved in a few volunteer opportunities locally.  We helped to collect and sort supplies for the victims of the recent tornados and we have been participating in Feed the City where we bring supplies and help to make sandwiches and bag food for the local homeless in the Dallas area.

9. Favorite thing about NDC so far?
My favorite thing about NDC so far is interacting with the patients.  Having been a stay at home mom for so many years it is great to have something else for myself to do that gives me another purpose and makes me feel that I can accomplish something other than folding clothes and cooking food!

10. What’s something you’d like our patients to know?
I am thrilled to be a part of the chiropractic community as I do believe that it is so beneficial to have as a part of overall health and wellness.

We had SO much fun hanging out with the cutest little kids at Suncreek Preschool today!  (Seriously, they are precious!) Dr. Harrison played a game of ‘Simon Says’ and talked about how all parts of their bodies function because of their nervous system!  Each kiddo got a “nerve” (pipe cleaner) to put inside our Mr. Spine so they can see that all those nerves are protected by their spine!  We demonstrated what it’s like to have a subluxation or misalignment of their spine with pool noodles (one lucky kiddo wore the ‘brain’ hat) and how that is expressed in their body, whether it’s sickness, ear infection, constipation, difficulty sleeping or concentrating  etc.  We showed them how gentle an adjustment is and how much fun it is to visit Dr. Harrison to feel all better!

It was such a great time!  Thank you so much for letting us be a part of their learning lives today!
