More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
To me, partnering with people means working together on the same level to accomplish goals. To do this, I first would learn more about you and what your goals are. Once we’ve identified your goals, I will work with you to create an action plan to help achieve those goals. I will then help you navigate different services and supports that will fit in your IRIS budget to accomplish your goals.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
Helping others accomplish their goals so that they can live a self-directed life is one of my favorite things about being a TMG IRIS consultant. I believe that having independence and living life on your own terms is important. I am passionate about helping people live the best quality of life possible in their communities.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My education in Human Development and minor in Social Work gave me a great foundation for working in human services. My work experience, however, is what prepared me to become a TMG IRIS Consultant. Working at a day center for over three years gave me the opportunity to listen, learn, advocate, mentor and work with individuals to help them accomplish their goals. I am excited to share my knowledge with you.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I like to do just about anything outdoors, including hunting, fishing, kayaking and camping. I also spend a lot of time playing outside with my two dogs at the lake. I enjoy doing these things independently as well as with family and friends. Health is also important to me, so I spend a lot of my free time at the gym and doing various physical activities.
