More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering means listening and gathering information to work together to create a life plan specific to your needs. Once we have identified the needs and supports, we will strive together to implement a plan that will transition your life with more ease.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I feel that everyone should have the opportunity to direct their own lives. IRIS is a wonderful support to make that happen. I enjoy working with people to help achieve a positive outcome that will enhance your life. Hard work is not easy but with support and willingness if can be done!

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My past experiences are with Adult Family Group Homes. I would partner with the people that I served and set up goals and if needed behavior plans. The most rewarding experiences for me are when I am able to see how the persistent hard work was accomplished and I saw the excitement of many achieving their goals and outcomes.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy almost anything outdoors. I love winter which brings ice fishing and snowmobiling. I am very active in the lives of my children such as sports, 4-H, and teaching 11th grade confirmation. Also, when time allows, I enjoy reading.
