Your TMG IRIS consultant is your partner as you create a plan that meets your needs and stays within your IRIS budget. Your TMG IRIS consultant can connect you to resources in your area, and will be a great source of information for any questions you have about the IRIS program. In a self-directed program like IRIS, you decide who provides your support and services and when they happen. You may have natural support from people in your life, or you may choose to purchase the support you need from an agency or someone that you hire directly. Your TMG IRIS consultant will be there to talk through these decisions with you, and will help you put a plan in place that reflects your choices.

Prior to joining TMG, I worked at a nursing home, where I assisted people who had recently been discharged and working with other agencies. My goal was to help the people who had been discharged to return home with the services they needed to reach their goals and remain independent. I also worked for the housing board in my community, where I helped host supports groups for those in need.
