More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering to me means learning about you and your goals, then making an action plan you feel comfortable with to achieve them. First, I work with you to identify services or supports that are available to you now. This will help to stretch your IRIS budget and keep the resources you need to get the care and support necessary to realize those important goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite part about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is helping people self-direct their life and remain successful.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Working at Milwaukee County in the Adult Protective Services division has prepared me to be a compassionate and knowledgeable TMG IRIS Consultant. I look forward to partnering with you, and helping you create a plan that helps you reach your goals and live the life you choose.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, working out and spending my time with my fiancée and our children and grandchildren.
