More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering means getting to know you, your supports and what has meaning in your life. From there, setting clear and precise goals and figuring out ways that that these goals can be achieved. We will then figure out what resources, supports and services are available to you now, and what resources you need to accomplish your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy partnering with others to assist them in finding ways to live their highest quality of life. This allows me to feel a great sense of purpose in my own life, and I learn a lot from those I help. It is very rewarding when I see people accomplish their own dreams and goals!

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I developed a passion for helping people live a healthy, fulfilled and independent lifestyle during college and have continued this passion for over 10 years through related jobs.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy reading, writing, teaching, practicing yoga, walking my dog, Charlie, camping, traveling, fishing, hiking, listening to music, cooking, trying different meals and spending time with my family and friends.
