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'?
I like to partner with people by developing a professional relationship with them that encourages self-direction. This includes providing them with information, resources and tools that will help them overcome obstacles that are in the way of them achieving their goals and living a fulfilling life.

Working at my previous place of employment prepared me to become an IRIS Consultant. It provided me with a ton of experience partnering with different individuals, care teams, day programs, and vendors. It also provided me training on how to develop a safe atmosphere for individuals, parents/guardians, and staff.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my children, watching movies both at home and in the theater, and having fun with makeup.
