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'?
As a partner, it is my responsibility to make sure that we take this journey together. That means we work with one another to ensure that your path is clear of any obstacles, pitfalls, or stumbling blocks that could keep you away from meeting your long-term goals. I take great pride in my work and I look forward to working with you!

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is that I get to meet new people, learn something new, and gain a new perspective on how other families navigate in our community.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I think the most important past experience that has prepared me for my role as a TMG IRIS Consultant has been, simply put, living my life. I have grown and matured into the person that I always knew I could be. My work experience helped me a lot, but living and learning has been the best teacher. Treat people with the respect you expect to get back!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
When I am not working hard for you, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and going to the movies.
