More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering means learning about you, your goals, and what is important to you. Then working closely with you to come up with an action plan, support services, and people to help achieve your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy helping people understand they can self-direct their cares and services to achieve a more fulfilling life. It is rewarding to see people making decisions that directly impacts their quality of life.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My work experience with Social Security Administration, the Wisconsin Works Program, and as a non-attorney disability advocate provided me with a unique perspective and skills to help older adults and individuals with disabilities achieve their goals.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, and spending time with my family.
