Tiffany grew up and spent a majority of her life in the great state of Oregon. Her love of her home state is only second to her love of her family. Tiffany has many passions in her life but none greater than her immediate and extended family.
You & Me together, we could do anything.
We had the opportunity three years ago to move back to my home state of North Dakota so we could be closer to our family and share the life of our daughter with her grandparents, aunts and uncles, and many cousins that reside in North Dakota. Nothing brings more joy into her world than spending time with family!
Another one of my wife’s great passions is working with children with hearing loss. She earned her Master Degree in Deaf Education and has made it her life’s work to provide these children with equal footing in a world where they have many obstacles to overcome. She has been a great advocate to these deaf children and their families as they begin to maneuver through these challenging times in their lives.
Education has always been a very important part of who Tiffany is, and she has instilled this into our 1st grade daughter who loves every minute of learning. She is also very involved in our Parent Teacher Organization at the Catholic School our daughter attends.
Tiffany and our daughter Ellisyn spend a lot of time bonding in the kitchen. The “Messy Baking Company” is always coming up with delicious treats for me to try! I am always amazed at the relationship she has with our daughter. We spent many years trying to have children and each moment that she can spend with Ellisyn she truly cherishes. She is not only a great mother but also an amazing wife! I am very fortunate that 12 years ago I was able to marry this amazing person and I am forever grateful that I am able to be a part of her life and this family.
My Wonderful Husband
Patrick is my teammate in life. He has an enormous love for family, both immediate and extended. We have enjoyed some wonderful adventures together living and travelling around the US! I know I am pretty biased about him, but he is the strongest and most caring person I know. He has been an amazing support in my life and I’m lucky to call him my husband and best friend.
When I met him, I knew that he was born to be a dad. His journey to fatherhood hasn’t been easy but through it all he was extremely positive and supportive. He loves to spend time with his family at home or on the road to support nieces and nephews in their activities. Growing up with 4 siblings, spending time with them has always been important. His fondest memories are of traveling to his grandparent’s to visit on weekends or holidays which is something we continue with our daughter. He plans annual MLB baseball trips to spend time with his dad, brother, and brother-in-laws as well as visits with sisters, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
Patrick has been a dedicated teacher and coach for 17 years, he has inspired many students in the classroom, on the field, on the mat, and in their personal lives. His greatest inspiration has and always will be his family.
