More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
​Partnering with you means leaning about you. I will listen to what you want your life to be like. I will help you figure out how to meet your goals and help you design a plan that fits into your estimated budget.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
​I enjoy working with all individuals. Those who know what they need and also those who need me to brainstorm with them to figure out goods and services they need to better their lives. I enjoy getting to know people and seeing them grow within the program.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
​Working at Homes for Independent Living allowed me to work one on one with individuals. I learned not everyone may need the same things in life or may not be looking for the same things in life. I learned to listen, ask questions and to be observant to individual's needs and wants.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
​I am very family oriented and spend most of my free time with my family. I enjoy being outdoors during the summer. I also like to paint pictures nothing in particular just whatever comes to mind. I have 2 dogs that take up a lot of my time as well.
