“Joining the Journey”
Founder & Executive Director, Recovery Is Happening (RIH)
Having personally battled and persevered through substance use challenges, Tiffany made the decision in 2011 to dedicate her life to serving others by helping them navigate out of the darkness and into a new way of life. Through RIH she has created opportunities that were not available to her during her own recovery journey. Her formation of a peer-lead recovery organization in Rochester, MN encourages new patterns of behavior and maintains a high level of accountability and affordability that nearly anyone can meet. Today Recovery Is Happening represents Tiffany’s vision of moving beyond addiction & leading a life in recovery. Tiffany is also a recipient of the 2016 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Voice Awards.
