Most Memorable Experience: Coaching the first squad in SMU history to win NCA College Nationals in 2016! I also won NCA Allstar Nationals and Worlds this same year with my worlds team, Spirit of Texas A-team. A season I will never forget! 

Advice for Younger Athletes: Follow your dreams and listen to your heart. When you are passionate about something, never give up on it, and fight with all you have for what you believe in. Most of all, trust your coach and your teammates. They're your family!

About Me: Tiffany’s cheerleading career began at the age of 13, after she quit gymnastics. While she loved gymnastics the forty hour a week practice schedule took its toll on her at a young age. She started cheering competitively at a gym in Arlington, TX called Spirit of Texas. She cheered there for 11 years and coached there until 2016. During her time at Spirit of Texas she won 11 NCA Nationals Titles, World Champion title as an athlete, many national titles as a coach, including the 2016 NCA Title and World Championship with the Spirit of Texas "A-Team". Tiffany is also a former SMU Cheer captain and cheered on her Mustangs for four years. Under Tiffany's leadership SMU Cheer has won back to back National championships at the NCA Collegiate Championship. The 2016 win was the first in SMU Cheer's history.
