Tiffany Knightly is a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) who received both her Family Nurse Practitioner degree and Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of South Florida. Tiffany grew up in Rockford, Illinois and moved to Florida in 2002 to attend USF. A strong interest in women’s health care led Tiffany to nursing school, where she quickly decided that she wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse.
She has worked at Osceola Medical Center in both Labor and Delivery and the Mother/Baby Unit, where she also provided patients with care and education about breastfeeding and mother and baby bonding. Recognizing the need for a female advocate for women’s health care issues, Tiffany decided to pursue an advanced degree as a Nurse Practitioner. She also broadened her skills with specialized training in laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation.
She married her husband Bryan on May 1, 2010, and they live in Orlando. In her free time, Tiffany loves to travel, exercise, and enjoy Florida’s wonderful beaches.
