More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering means that I will listen and ask questions in an attempt to help the individual truly realize their goals for a healthy and safe living situation. Often times, individuals are dictated to, but I want to be a Consultant who allows the individual to speak up for what they truly want to have a fulfilling life.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
Knowing that my work is not just about pushing paper, but about helping people is amazing. As a Consultant, I like listening to those who are often overlooked and disregarded allowing them to use their voice as well.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My school experience prepared me for business, but working as an Income Maintenance Specialist reminded me to be compassionate and non-judgmental. Helping people to meet their need for food and healthcare was great, but knowing as an IRIS Consultant can assist individuals in bettering their total quality of life is even more amazing.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to travel, and I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
