TIFFANY NICOLE ADAMS
Committed to Inspiring Change
filled with triumph, love and loss....
She was born Tiffany Nicole Adams on December 8, 1983 and raised in the small town of Lufkin, Texas. Growing up with three sisters and one brother in a single-parent home, Tiffany’s humble beginnings were the foundation of her big ambitions to aspire to stand out. Her infectious personality, creative and artistic nature with impeccable taste for the best in quality and style generated admirers and attention early on. Tiffany would later find these characteristics were quite necessary on her life’s course.
Tiffany, upon graduating from High School, moved to Huntsville, Texas to pursue multiple degrees at Sam Houston State University. She obtained a Bachelor of Science Business Administration degree and a Bachelor of Science Humanity and Social Science degree with a specialization in Fashion Merchandising. During her time in University, Tiffany was known as the go-to person for fashion advice, styling tips and most respected her expertise in fashion show production. During these years, Tiffany realized that she had an inherent passion - style and fashion. Upon graduation she became an independent fashion stylist, gaining a slew of clients ranging from corporate executives to local celebrities.
In 2008, Tiffany Nicole moved to the city of Houston to expand her styling business and strategically develop relationships in the industry. Her intent was to dominate nationwide. Tiffany grew successful and was ready for what the world had in store for her, until an annual trip back home to visit her family in Lufkin, Texas for Christmas ended in tragedy.
Driving from Houston to Lufkin, Texas is a 2-hour long drive, and Tiffany had done it many times before. On December 23, 2013, Tiffany abruptly lost control of her vehicle, due to no fault of her own. When her vehicle finally came to a stop, Tiffany was trapped inside and unconscious. She awoke in a hospital to a whole new reality. Over the next few months, Tiffany’s life changed drastically.
Tiffany underwent bilateral above knee amputation, she suffered from a broken neck, ribs and other traumatic injuries from her car accident. Bound to a wheelchair, with multiple physical injuries, the emotional pain and anguish set in. Tiffany lost what she now considers her ‘first life’. She has since begun her ‘second life’, after hard emotional & physical work and therapy. Tiffany has become an inspirational example of tenacity and faith. A new outlook pushed her into her purpose.
Since her accident, Tiffany began SAINT TIFFANY's Foundation. The organization's mission is to provide support and resources; including limb loss resources and medical supplies for families/individuals who have experienced limb loss due to motor vehicle accidents. SAINT TIFFANY's Foundation also focuses on civic engagement and advocacy while raising funds and awareness for those in need. The non-profit leads community service initiatives and is always seeking opportunities to be of service.Tiffany describes her renewed purpose as striving to “inspire those who are facing challanging times in life, that have left them feeling hopeless from lack of emotional, physical and psychological support. I want to empower people I encounter with love and resources.”
In doing so she actively aims to help others come to the same realization. As she creates a culture and send a message to the world that we all ‘win’ in this life, and that we should focus on winning even when we have experienced loss.
Tiffany currently spends most of her time in Houston with family and friends, also traveling often to Los Angeles and abroad for work. She has started a new lifestyle brand called Saint Tiffany’s to house her fashion, motivation and travel endeavors. She has presented styles to celebrities, high profile business people and fellow philanthropist and socialites. Tiffany uses her platform to speak to audiences in need of inspiration, motivation & compassion. There is so much in store for Tiffany, but there is much more in store for all of us, as her inspiring story encourages us all to take charge, push forward and win in our lives. . . no matter what.
