More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
When partnering with you, I first like to get to know you, so I am able to learn about the things that are most important to you in your life in order to develop goals. After we establish what your goals are, we then work together to create a meaningful plan; one that includes supports and services to help you achieve your goals.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy seeing individuals become empowered by self-directing and being in control of their supports and services. My greatest joy is being witness to someone maintain or achieve the goals they have set.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
For many years I was an in-home care provider, working with children, older adults and individuals with varying diagnoses. During that time, I learned the importance of asking person-centered questions and really listening to and adapting to each individual's needs, so they were able to maintain their independence at home and in the community.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy relaxing with a book, watching documentaries and crime shows and putting puzzles together. I also enjoy doing activities with my children such as, walking the lake path around Lake Geneva, taking bike rides and playing games and sports with them.
