More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I partner with people by getting to know you. I listen carefully to your needs/wants, as well as the goals you want to achieve. I then build an action plan to support your goals, while maintaining your IRIS budget. I will work with you to ensure you receive the resources and support you need to achieve your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
Empowering people, through self-directed care, to live their best life; despite the obstacles laid before them. Nothing is more rewarding than celebrating an accomplished goal.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Working in the field for several years in Adult Family Homes, from my role as a direct support professional to my role as an area director, has provided me the knowledge to ask questions, listen carefully, and advocate for the elderly and vulnerable populations.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy creating crafts, gardening, fishing, traveling, spending time with family, and relaxing with my dogs. Sometimes, I will bake some cookies or other treats and share them on my adventures!
