Her mother, Gwendolyn Lafleur nominated her on Facebook.. Part of the nominating post stated as follows:" She finished high school with honors and went to beauty college and went back to school for dental assistant to have two careers to choose from. She was a single mom for quite a while until she met and married the man of her dreams: Ethan Poole. Together they added two more children to their beautiful family. Tiffany has their children involved in activities such as dance and baseball. She never gets a break, she is usually hauling one to dance and the other two to baseball. She does most of this by herself because her husband is a lineman and is gone from home most of the time. Tiffany doesn't ask for much, just love and hugs from her children and family".
