How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
As an IRIS Consultant I work with people to clear the path ahead by listening closely to the wants and needs of the individuals I partner with. I help those individuals make use of the broad network of resources available to them as they work towards achieving their goals.

The past experience that prepared me best to be an IRIS Consultant was working directly with people on a daily basis to help them be an active part of their communities while working as a direct caregiver.
