More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I wholeheartedly support people self-directing their lives. I do this by partnering with the people, and helping them in achieving their goals while supporting their ability take the lead.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is working together with the participant in a side-by-side relationship. I take joy when I see people realize that they are achieving their goals, and their excitement as they work towards new goals.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I have worked as a TMG IRIS Consultant in the past, but also have experiences across different fields that give me a unique perspective. I have worked closely with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community and while I know and understand quite a bit of sign language, I am not proficient. I have been a job coach, an advocate, a manager, a caregiver, a motivator, plus much more.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to kayak, camp, walk along the lake, spend time at the beach, and other activities I can do with my toddler in tow.
