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'?
Part of partnering with an individual starts by me being an active listener and really taking the time to get to know you. This approach allows me to work with you to develop a plan that is both financially sound and comfortable to you, and also allows you to live the life you choose.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I am an avid believer that people know themselves better than anyone else, and should have the option to self-direct his or her own care. I believe when a person has a say in their care, it leads to a fuller, happier and healthy life. I find that having the opportunity to partner with individuals to help them achieve their goals for their lives is rewarding.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I have over 10 years of experience working in Human Services and community-based programs. This has prepared me to be a knowledgeable TMG IRIS Consultant, which I look forward to sharing with you.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I'm an avid reader and enjoy cooking. I spend lots of time with my pets, and when the weather permits, I enjoy spending time outdoors. I also enjoy volunteering in the community with my sorority.
