I look forward to learning about you and your family dynamic as we work together to reach your goals.

This will help you efficiently divide your IRIS budget and strengthen support towards your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy helping others and providing encouragement to strengthen self-direction. Providing others with an outlook where they can accomplish their goals and live the life they plan is very rewarding. Watching others become more independent and reaching their own personal goals puts a smile on my face and brings joy to my heart.

I have experience with working with families to help them reestablish their connection within the community and finding resources for them to strengthen the family dynamic and their overall outlook. Connecting with families and learning about their experiences has helped me prepare to be a TMG IRIS Consultant. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you find ways to reach your goals.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy traveling and exploring different countries and cultures. When I'm not traveling, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family playing card games or engaging in outgoing activities.
