DALLAS, Texas (KDAF) — Dr. Tiffany Moon is a board-certified anesthesiologist who’s published two dozen manuscripts, reviews, and book chapters. She speaks internationally on her research and is also raising a family. That’s the highly regarded, serious medical professional Moon, and then there’s the famous TikTok Tiffany Moon who currently has over 62K followers.
In truth, they’re the same person and a result of an amazing balancing act by Moon of being a doctor, mother, and TikTok sensation.
She wasn’t on TikTok right out of the gate, but actually heard about the app when her 16-year-old daughter wanted to do some family dance bits during quarantine. Since then, it’s become a hilarious creative outlet for Moon and a counterbalance to her serious profession.
“The whole point of it is, it that it’s not serious. That you shouldn’t take yourself too seriously,” she says, “and I love to make people laugh.”
It’s also a way for Moon to find humor in the mundane or sometimes frustrating moments of everyday life. She says she doesn’t put a lot of thought into the ideas, just reacting to what happens around her.
She also likes the freedom TikTok provides, saying “They’re meant to be a little imperfect. You know, things will be a little out of order, or something doesn’t look quite right. And I say, ‘you know what, that’s just how life is. I don’t want it to be perfect'”
