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'?
My job as a TMG IRIS consultant is to create a partnership with the people I work with. My role is to be their 'road map' to help them along the IRIS path. By providing information, filling out forms, and finding other areas of support, I will help each person clear their own path on their self-directed journey through the IRIS program.

My favorite part about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is knowing that I am an essential tool in helping the people I am partnered with live the life they choose.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and my young son. We like to hike, swim, read, laugh and most of all dance.
