Tiffany Gardner, BBA
Clinical Site Coordinator
I have been a part of the PA Program since July of 2019. I was born in Odessa, Texas and moved to Fort Worth after graduating from college. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and Management from Baylor University.
As the Clinical Site Coordinator for the PA department. I recruit and retain clinical sites and preceptors for our students. The best part of my job is going on site visits and seeing first-hand what great providers our students are becoming and the confidence they have in themselves while taking care of their patients. This makes me proud knowing that our students will be ready to treat people once they graduate from the program!
