More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I enjoy being proactive and reliable, and I love collaboration. As a TMG IC, I will help you “clear the path ahead” by having a full arsenal of resources to help you live a self-determined life. I will also share my years of experience and knowledge with my colleagues and the people who choose the TMG ICA to help ensure the best service possible. I believe that as I build professional relationships with the individuals I work with, I will also genuinely relate to them on a personal level. You can count on me to always help you work towards your goals, keeping with TMG's mission to inform, inspire and innovate in all of the work that I do.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy working in an inclusive culture that is fun and also presents challenges to overcome. I look forward to partnering with the many diverse individuals in the Milwaukee area, learning each person's story, and overcoming any challenges that may arise. I look forward to working with my colleagues, and utilizing them as one of the many resources we will have at our disposal. I am excited about this inclusive culture of TMG – which recognizes that everyone has value and deserves to be heard.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Working for four years at the Center for Independence (CFI) providing employment supportive services, monitoring supportive home care services, as well as providing training to our supervised caregivers, has prepared me to be an IRIS Consultant. In addition, my experience working with the Hmong community providing education and training to the Hmong staff members who could potentially provide in-home care services to individiuals in the program will greatly enhance my partnering with individuals in the IRIS Program.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I love getting in the kitchen to try out new recipes to share with friends and family. I’m definitely a family person, so I like to spend any free time I get with them. I’m also a fan of recreational outdoor sports, including but not limited to, volleyball, tennis, soccer, and fishing! When I just want to have some low-key time to myself, I like to watch comedies and romantic international TV drama series.
