More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I assist individuals with identifying their desires in life and work to implement ideas and resources to help them live the life they envision for themselves.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy my job immensely because I am able to assist people with living the life they choose to live. Just because someone might have obstacles doesn't mean they aren't still able to maintain a fulfilling life and I am blessed to be able to assist people with achieving this.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My best experience is on a personal level. I had an uncle who had severe cerebral palsey leaving him unable to walk or talk, requiring assistance for his most basic needs. My mother took care of him in her home and the IRIS Program enabled her to do this. After I saw how much this program impacted my family, I knew that I wanted to help others with this program. As well as seeing this program benefit my immediate family, I am also a cancer survivor so that experience has blessed me to realize really how important life really is and that it should be lived to the fullest possible.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, spending as much time outside in warm weather as possible and learning about healthy eating and living.
