She is the oldest of four children (all girls). She got her earliest influences in music from her grandparents who were both musicians. Throughout the years, she picked up several musical instruments including the piano, accoustic guitar, and accordian. She would always spend hours as a child listening to music and singing in her room. She began studying dance at the age of three (tap and ballet; she picked up jazz dance at the age of 7) with Kathy Burke (niece of famed dancer/actor, Gene Kelly) and continued to study throughout school and into college (later picking up modern dance, lyrical dance, and hip hop dance). At age 11, she had to sing a solo for a tap number she was doing for a dance recital. Most who heard her sing for the first time where genuinly impressed and suggested to her mother to enroll Tiffany in vocal lessons. Tiffany began her voice lessons at the age of 12 and performed in several vocal recitals, concerts, and choirs. She also began peruing another passion of hers which was musical theatre. At age 13, she attended the Encore Music Camp of Pennsylvania at Wilkes University located in Wilkes-Barre, PA for a full summer where she majored in Musica Theatre. She greatly enjoyed the classes which consisted of musical repretoire classes, solfegio classes, vocal theory classes, acting while singing, and acting classes. She enjoyed performing in the camp's productions even more which included an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical revue and a shakespearean play. She continued to study at ?Wilkes University throughout the school year at Wilkes Community Conservatory, the fall and winter version of 'Encore.' That included acting classes, private voice lessons, concert choir, and a musical theatre class all geared toward high school students.

After graduating high school in June of 1998, she moved with her family to Pittsburgh, PA. That fall, she attended Seton Hill University and majored in musical theatre. She quickly became involved with the Pittsburgh theatre scene. She auditioned for a new production entitled Whispers Want to Holler at the Kuntu Repretory Theatre, a multicultural theatre group.

During production for Lovers, she auditioned for the Old Schoolhouse Players upcoming production of Fiddler on the Roof.
