Regal Social Service Director
Tiffany Ragels is a Southern Arizona native. Growing up on her family’s ranch she developed an early love of the outdoors and an appreciation for diversity. She started out as a small business owner but her passion for volunteering quickly became her career path and she moved into non-profit with an emphasis on adoption. She has been in the field for over a decade and has extensive experience with education, development and management. She has worked in multiple countries including Mexico, Haiti and Ethiopia and she was instrumental in helping the government of Burundi develop their adoption program. She has presented both abroad and in the United States on such issues as program development, best adoption practices, childhood development and the future of adoption. As an adoptive parent herself she understands the issues and struggles as families go through the process. Blending her family of four, two biological and two adopted from Ethiopia, she has personal experience with all the joys and difficulties adoption may present. In her spare time she likes hiking, yoga, reading, traveling and creating new dishes in the kitchen.
