More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
As an IRIS Consultant, my role is to empower the individuals I partner with to meet the goals they've identified that will assist them in making a safe, comfortable, happy and fulfilled life based on what that means to the person as an individual. We'll work together to determine what type of services can best meet the needs and established goals to create a support plan. IÆll assist the individual participating in the IRIS Program as much or as little as they need, according to their preference, in implementing these services and meeting your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being an IRIS Consultant is being able to get to know people I partner with and seeing them achieve some of their long-time goals and how it positively impacts their life.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My experience doing options counseling has had the most influence on my role as an IRIS Consultant. In this position, I provided education on the resources and services available within the community so people had the knowledge to best decide for themselves what would work for them.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy crafts, scrapbooking, decorating, watching cooking shows, volunteering for my church and my daughter's dance team, spending time with my children, and traveling.
