More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I partner with people by working together as a team. You take the steering wheel, and I’ll be in the passenger seat providing support as we clear the path ahead to help you reach your goals.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is the self-direct care and the independence it allows for one to meet his or her own goals. It is rewarding to help assist individuals in achieving goals and watch them succeed in getting the most out of life.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
The past experiences that have prepared me to become a TMG IRIS Consultant were mostly from work and personal experiences. Having an education certainly helped with book knowledge and communication skills, but all of my work experience with individuals in the community and working as a care worker for many years has opened my perspective and has empowered me to continue to help those in need.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going up north to our cabin to be out on our boat, 4-wheeling and just being in nature. I also enjoy painting, traveling, walking my dogs, cooking and creating projects.
