Tiffany Turley Bowcut
BYU Title IX coordinator
Tiffany Turley Bowcut grew up in a home where family and the Savior were the most important qualities. When she left for college at BYU, she had dreams of getting married and having children and wanted to create that same family-centric environment she’d grown up with. At 19, Tiffany was married to a young man while they attended BYU.
Her new husband’s pornography addiction and infidelity led to a lack of trust in their marriage, heartbreak, and an eventual divorce. Following this event, Tiffany relied heavily on her family and loved ones for support. Her hope was further harmed when a trusted acquaintance sexually assaulted her. The trust and love Tiffany had for others was very nearly depleted at this point, and she felt very alone.
Tiffany dealt with a time of depression and dark thoughts which greatly decreased her self-love. It was only through a spiritual prompting to remember her family that she was able to overcome these thoughts. This and many other experiences helped push Tiffany to continue and become a great advocate for hope.
Tiffany married Tom when she was nearly 40, and though she had very different plans as a new BYU student nearly two decades before, she learned to allow the Lord to guide her life instead of pushing for things to happen in her own time. Tiffany and Tom are the parents of three children: Isaac, Zoey, and Benny.
In November 2020, tragedy again entered Tiffany’s life when their youngest, Benny, stopped breathing and passed away. Though this was the darkest moment Tiffany had ever experienced, she continues in her faith, knowing that the Savior will right all wrongs and that her baby still lives with his Heavenly Father. With her experience in hardship, Tiffany works as the Title IX Coordinator at Brigham Young University and attempts to bring peace and hope to others in that position.
