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'?
When I partner with you, I take the time to learn about you and help you navigate your plan so that you will be successful in meeting your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I am a firm believer in self-directed care – It’s a path I would choose for myself and my loved ones. Being a TMG IRIS consultant means I get to help you live the life you choose, and I find that empowering others to live their lives to the fullest is rewarding.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
From the time I was a young child, I knew I wanted to help people feel great about themselves and to help them be included in their communities and accomplish their goals. My schooling focused on learning how to help others. But even more importantly, I have been helping others since I was a child. All of my previous employment opportunities revolved around helping others and their families. These things have all prepared me to be a passionate and caring IRIS Consultant for you to partner with.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family at home or traveling. I love to travel and I want to share this passion with my family.
