Here at the Homestead, we are blessed with some really incredible and talented folks who bring their passion and talent to our nonprofit, and to our community.
From a young age, Tiffany Hammond gravitated toward protecting wild things and wild places. Even though she grew up as a “city girl,” she spent countless hours observing wildlife and exploring the natural world. Her grandparents’ farm in rural North Dakota helped kindle Tiffany’s adventurous spirit, propelling her into a life devoted to protecting all things wild. Tiffany received her Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology from the University of North Dakota and her Master of Environmental Management in Environmental Toxicology, Chemistry, and Risk Assessment from Duke University.
In her sixteen-year career with the Department of the Interior (DOI), she conducted numerous environmental toxicological studies, wrote several national policies, designed and taught many courses, and successfully led nation-wide teams to achieve environmental conservation goals. She received several awards for the promotion and development of sound science, scientific integrity, peer review, and associated policies. She’s published several technical publications and given countless presentations.
In August 2015, Tiffany resigned/retired from the DOI to fulfill some of her other life-long dreams, including: 1) living in the Colorado mountains, 2) narrowing the distance to family, 3) becoming an influential writer, and 4) pursuing a career in real estate. She is currently a Realtor with Keller Williams Foothills Realty, LLC, and is based out of Gilpin County, Colorado. She is working on her first novel and continues her quest to protect places and critters who don’t have voices of their own.
Tiffany is a proud board member of The Holistic Homestead, where she strives to promote a healthy community – mind, body, and spirit.
