More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering means coming along side you to learn more about your passions and goals. We then will work together to find the services and supports you might need to achieve your goals and develop a plan for moving forward. I am there every step of the way to support you.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I am passionate about helping people meet their goals and overcoming any barriers they face. Self-directed care allows you to be in control of how, when, and who provides the supports.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I have been lucky enough to work in many areas that provide support to people, including camp, in-home care, residential group homes, schools, day treatment/employment facilities, and most recently as a social worker. All of this has given me a really well-rounded perspective. Over all, I really want people to succeed at their goals, and I have loved helping people live their best lives.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to spend time with my family and two dogs. Being outside is one of our favorite activities. I also am a photographer, so capturing people’s smiles and true selves is a huge passion of mine.
