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'?
In my role at TMG, I partner with people by listening to their goals and learning about what they would like to accomplish. My job is to help make sure the people I partner with have a voice so that they can be heard and understood.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
As a caregiver for my grandmother years ago, I learned to be compassionate while partnering with her so that she could live her best life. This, along with my work experience, has prepared me to become a TMG IRIS Consultant.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Outside of TMG, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling the world.
