More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I love going into a person's homes and getting to know who they are and what they enjoy. I feel by meeting with individuals in their homes they are more relaxed and willing to open up about themselves.

I am able to work from home and I look forward to meeting all the great people I will be working with.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Previously I worked for Community Care in the Family Care and Partnership programs which provided me with knowledge and understanding of setting up care plans and working within a budget to make sure that individuals have the services they need in their home to be successful.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy going fishing and doing charters on Lake Michigan. I also enjoy going on motorcycle rides and spending time with family and friends.
