Prior to coming to TMG, I worked for three years for the non-profit organization Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, as well as several years in the food and retail industry. I've trained, managed, and worked alongside individuals who have had experiences and exposure to substance abuse, mental health issues, and physical and cognitive disabilities. Thanks to my experiencing in marketing and hospitality, I've learned to strategize, network and provide resources and aid to individuals through self-directed tactics. These experiences have prepared me to be a successful TMG IRIS Consultant by building strong relationships through compassion and listening.
