TIFFANY LOMMEL, MS, RDN, LDN

BIOGRAPHY

Tiffany Lommel is a registered dietitian working at our Southpoint office. Tiffany loves interacting with patients and learning from them, while trying to make a difference during an uncertain time in their life. She feels that we should all try and have a healthy relationship with food. “Food is very emotional. It provokes memories, happiness and pleasure,” says Tiffany. She continues, “I wanted to help patients establish and maintain a healthy relationship with food during a time in their life where food and nutrition play a vital roll in their success.”  Having a personal connection with cancer, she understands what her patients are going through and wishes to do all she can to help alleviate or minimize nutritional concerns for patients. Tiffany loves how friendly, kind, and helpful the employees of CSNF are to each other and their patients, which ultimately makes her job easier. Born and raised in Southern Georgia on a family farm, healthy living has been part of Tiffany’s life since she was young.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family doing outdoor activities like boating, fishing, biking, hiking. She also finds joy in cooking- especially making jams!
