Tiffany is a transplant to ABQ via California 8 years ago and is a full-time stay-at-home mom to a vivacious and super smart three-year-old. She and her husband both grew up overseas and they both love travel, culture, and languages. They love living in the countryside on the outskirts of town and relaxing under large cottonwoods, swinging in hammocks, and evening walks with the family to all the neighborhood ranches. She is taking a break from her teaching career while she raises their baby girl and finishes her masters in education. Her favorite things about Albuquerque are the quaint coffee shops and Sandia Mountain hikes.
