More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I am an open-minded person and use a nonjudgemental, individual approach when partnering with people. I love to hear about my participants’ lives and what matters the most to them. I truly value the time we spend together, helping you live as full and independent lives as you wish.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I started my career interning at Adult Family family homes in the Fox Valley area.

My prior position was as a Family Care program case manager, where I connected my members to resources to keep them safe in their homes.
