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'?
Partnering together involves me working with you and your support system. That could include your family members, physicians, and the community you live in. In order to clear the path ahead, we would work together to create realistic and achievable goals to help you move towards success while receiving quality care and support.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is getting to watch the people I partner with achieve success – whether it's accomplishing a goal or simply feeling confident when making a positive decision. I enjoy working alongside people to create plans for them that will improve their long-term care goals and help them have a better quality of life.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My work experience in the social service field has well-prepared me to be your TMG IRIS Consultant. Working with many populations has expanded my knowledge of what diversity really is. My drive to help others has always been a quality of mine since I was a child and now that I have grown professionally, I have the ability to help people who are in need of assistance.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy spending quality time with my family by watching movies or playing board games. I also love watching my silly children sing and dance. It brings me joy seeing others having a blast with no worry in the world.
