Care Responsibilities

Your TMG IRIS consultant is your partner as you create a plan that meets your needs and stays within your IRIS budget. Your TMG IRIS consultant can connect you to resources in your area, and will be a great source of information for any questions you have about the IRIS program. In a self-directed program like IRIS, you decide who provides your support and services and when they happen. You may have natural support from people in your life, or you may choose to purchase the support you need from an agency or someone that you hire directly. Your TMG IRIS consultant will be there to talk through these decisions with you, and will help you put a plan in place that reflects your choices.

More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering with you means that I’ll take the time to learn about you and your goals. I will help you develop a plan that will make you successful in achieving your goals though you will always be the person calling the shots. I will provide you with options for services that will allow you the best use of resources to achieve your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite part about being an IRIS Consultant is that I get to help individuals self-direct their services, giving them control over how they want to live their lives and who that will involve.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I am a strong believer that people should have the right to make their own choices. I have helped many individuals achieve their goals, including remaining in their own home, being as independent as possible, and accessing their community.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love trying new recipes, as well as spending time outdoors, where I can do things like sitting by the camp fire, gardening, swimming, and grilling.
