After struggling with her own mental health, Tiffany enrolled at Wenatchee Valley College at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with the goal of pursuing a career that will allow her to help others. Now, at 38, Tiffany is the Vice President of the Psi Beta honor society and an active volunteer at WVC and in the community. She plans to transfer to Washington State University to earn her bachelor of science in psychology.
Growing up in Kenya, Juddy was eager to get an education, but it was not until she was 33 years old and a primary caregiver for her husband with Primary Progressive Sclerosis and their two young children that Juddy was able to enroll at Wenatchee Valley College and begin her associate degree in nursing. An active volunteer and PTK member, her next goal is to earn her bachelor of science in nursing.
