Tiffany was one of my first JD/MBA students when I arrived as a faculty member to the Kelley School in the late 90s. With her husband, she ran a coffee kiosk that supplied our Evening MBA students during their breaks. It was the only place to get anything in the evening on that side of the IUPUI campus. As a student, Tiffany was very sharp. Her positive spirit was infectious. I was proud to see her move forward in her career as a Kelley alum and teach courses for us. She was one of our best and most devoted associate faculty members. The Kelley School family will greatly miss her. Rest in peace Tiffany, you are with God now.

It was an incredible honor to work with Tiffany on the Kelley School Alumni board. Most importantly, she was a wonderful friend with incredible legal acumen and I always enjoyed our time together at Nick's after each meeting. I will dearly miss her sense of humor and my heart breaks for her family. I pray that all of the wonderful memories provide solace to you.

I first met Tiffany as my Tax Research instructor while I was completing my undergraduate degree at Kelley Indianapolis. I was then privileged to call her a colleague as a fellow instructor in the MSA program. Tiffany was truly dedicated to the success of her students. She will be missed by her Kelley family. I send prayers of comfort and healing to Carter, her children and her grandchildren.

I was very fortunate to have worked with Tiffany during her Ice Miller years. She was very bright both in her intellect and her smile. Her personality could warm a room. Through her, we got to know her beautiful girls, Ashley and Haley. We will miss her dearly. We are praying for comfort, clarity and direction for Ashley, Haley, William, Carter and the entire family.
