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 someone, I like to talk with the person about what we’re doing and the goals we’re trying to achieve. I like to involve them in this process by getting their feedback about how we can work together to achieve this. In these conversations, I learn what you need and try to match your needs with what resources are available. The better we understand your needs and your goals, the better we can be sure your budget gets used in a way that’s best for you.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I like that I can help the people I partner with find the resources that are best for them. Giving them the best services and support to make them feel cared for in the right way is important to me. Making people happy also makes me happy.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
In my family, we all were raised to have good, open communication so that we could understand each other well. We knew how we all felt and what our needs were. If someone needed help, we would talk with the person to see how we could help them. I have carried this experience into my adult life, and practiced it in my previous job as well, with positive results.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I like to go to the gym or dance Zumba, because exercise is my stress reliever. Working out helps calm my nerves and gives me an outlet for all my emotions. More simply, exercising makes me happier.
