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'?
I like to partner with people by coming into every environment with a positive outlook and passion for helping others. I understand that continuing to maintain your lifestyle is extremely important as we move towards building goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite part about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is being out in the community and feeling like I make a genuine difference in people's lives.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Previously, I worked as a Care Manager within another managed care organization and held a leadership role within that organization. I'm very comfortable assisting people with service coordination and accessing community resources and am knowledgeable of providers within Milwaukee County. My sister has Down's Syndrome and lives with me full time, and this helps me gain more perspective within my partnerships.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I love playing with my three dogs and dancing.
