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'?
Being a good listener is the first step in partnering with you to clear the path ahead. I want to learn where it is you want to go, what your goals are and what your vision of the future looks like. Once we figure out what your goals are, I will partner with you to identify the tools that are going to help you achieve your vision and help to remove any obstacles along your path.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
The best part about being an IRIS consultant is getting to partner with you to help you achieve your chosen goals so that you get the most out of life. It is a joy to work together as a team to find creative ways to make your dreams possible.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
In my 20 years of work in social and human services all over the world, I have learned that while we all have unique goals and aspirations, we all share a common desire of making a happy and meaningful life for ourselves and those around us. I believe it is my job as your TMG IRIS Consultant to help you achieve this. The lessons and experiences I’ve had over the years have prepared me to be a great partner for you.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and being outdoors in nature. I have traveled much of the world, and recently traveled around the Arctic nation of Iceland, followed by a weeks-long expedition in the waters and along the shores of the US/ Canada border. I also enjoy woodworking and building boats, and have made several touring kayaks.
