Tiffany

Our Stories

Meet Tiffany, a Clarke alum and a senior engineer at a medical tech company. 

Diagnosed with a bilateral severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss at 10 days old, Tiffany’s listening and spoken language journey began with early intervention services at the age of one month. At five months, she was fitted with her first pair of hearing aids, and at three, she enrolled at Clarke where she studied through eighth grade. She mainstreamed to her hometown public high school and received a cochlear implant at 16.  

After high school, Tiffany attended the Rochester Institute of Technology, where she benefited from services from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering, with minors in both mechanical engineering and science, technology and society.  

Today, she’s an active member of the special education community, through her volunteer work with the Federation for Children with Special Needs, Division for Early Childhood of the Council for Exceptional  Children, the Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC) a federally funded technical assistance center, and Cochlear Americas.
