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.

In my previous position, I worked as a Health Coach for three years. I had the opportunity to work with those who are aging, youth, young adults, adults, and people experiencing homelessness. I have a heart for people. I love teaching and helping them make their dreams come true. In 2016, I was working with a youth with several medical issues who became homeless. I spent countless hours looking for resources that would place her in permanent housing so that she could have a major surgery. Months had past, but finally a door opened, and she received housing and surgery. She wrote me the sweetest thank you card, I still have it to this day. This happen three years ago.

More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I am the biggest cheerleader for the people I partner with! I believe the sky is the limit, so reach for the stars! I will help people achieve the goals that they have. If they don't have any goals, I will help them figure out what it is they would like to achieve, and help put a plan in place to do just that. I will pull out all stops so that their path will be clear.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing is seeing the individual smile when they find out there is hope.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I had a foster daughter that had some challenges. I worked hard to get her the services that she needed to survive and feel her self-worth. When others told her she couldn't, I told her she could. When she kept her head down because she was not like everyone else, I said lift your head up, you are somebody. She ended up graduating from college with an Associate degree in Criminal Justice, and I couldn’t be prouder of her. That's why I chose my field of study. I like helping people.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love spending time with my family at church, going out to dinner and watching movies.
