More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I partner with people to clear the path ahead by helping them to empower themselves. I enjoy seeing people tapping into their resources to help them grow. I love to see people when they realize that where they are now is just a stepping stone to where they are going.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I love to see the smile on people faces when they set a goal that they think is impossible and they finally reach that goal. The look is priceless and it reminds me why I chose this type of work and why I have been so loyal to it for over 12 years. I know that the gratitude is sincere.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I think working with a wide range of people dealing with real life issues on a regular basis have allowed me to see the people and their experiences in a different light. A lot of the resources and tools that I have learned to help them have also helped me in my life so I feel like I have an insight that allows me to have compassion and a desire to see people grow by meeting them where they are and knowing that whatever their goal is it is never too small or big to reach. I have been told and believe that I am a natural nurturer, and I think that is what have prepared me for this IRIS Consultant position.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love spending time with my 7-year-old daughter. I was 40 years old when I had her. She was 1lb 10 ounces and I want her to experience so many things. We do arts and crafts, have game nights, shop, we have make overs and we travel throughout the year. I feel like I have lived my life and had 40yrs of me time so this is our time. I do however go to the gym, read, and go driving when I want some alone time.
