After completing her graduate internship, Tiffany released her first book, entitled The Insatiable Quest for Beauty. This book is broken into twelve coffee dates for a personal, storytelling feel. She shares her journey through struggles with body image and disordered eating, and the practical steps she took toward freedom. The book has an accompanying workbook, leader’s guide, and website with video interviews from other women sharing their stories. The response has been incredible as women relate with and find life change through Tiffany’s story. Time and again we receive emails from young women who have finally recognized they are struggling with an eating disorder and found a treatment team, and from others who said Tiffany’s book was the primary motivating cause for them to begin overcoming their personal struggle with body image.
With four years of experience working in Student Development at Nazareth College of Rochester, Tiffany has insight into working with students struggling on a college campus. When she speaks on college campuses, she puts this knowledge to good measure, as well as offering staff development trainings. As Vice President of Student Development Martha Asselin said, "You were remarkable. You provided the student affairs folks with a great deal of information, all of which is extremely useful and will help us to better serve our students. Your knowledge about eating disorders is extensive, from not only a personal basis but also from the impressive amount of research you have done on the subject. You truly have evolved into an expert on this topic!"
Over the past five years, Tiffany has conducted trainings on working with patients with eating disorders for health care professionals and music therapy students, including presenting at the National Music Therapy Conference. In addition, Tiffany speaks at high schools, colleges, churches, and treatment centers across the country, including Youth for Christ conferences, Biola University, Colorado Christian College, and Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Even with the education, knowledge, and experience Tiffany brings to this important topic, the true measure of this ministry's success is in the lives of many who have been changed through the Lord's work in and through this ministry. Many of the stories of individuals who have been set free from body image struggles will never be heard publically due to privacy reasons, but there has never been a conference, small group meeting, or other event where there has not been a powerful response. However, we do have a few stories that girls have given permission for us to share, and you can read a little bit about their stories at this link. We hope your community can be another opportunity for the Lord to invade lives and bring transformation.
