Specialties (e.g., working with autism, the elderly, employment for people with disabilities or youth in transition, mental health, experience with assisted technology)

I am great at listening, narrowing down what a person really wants, and helping them understand and access resources to get them where they want to be. I spent years as a high-school special education teacher, where I worked with students of all abilities, including those who have Autism, cognitive/intellectual disabilities, and developmental disabilities. I then became an employment specialist, helping people with disabilities to succeed in their chosen job. When the pandemic changed the job market, I became a family-care case manager for people with disabilities and those who are aging. I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and abilities, and I am LGBTQIA+ friendly. I am here to be your partner in helping you achieve your dreams!

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
As a TMG IRIS Consultant, I like that you make the decisions about your life; I just provide the possibilities on ways to make it happen!

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I have been a special education teacher, an employment specialist, and a family-care case-manager. All of this has prepared me to be a knowledgeable and empathetic TMG IRIS Consultant. I look forward to getting to know you and working together to help you live the life you choose.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I have so much fun training my dog; we even have a dance routine together! I also sing and play the guitar. During the winters, I like to curl up with a hot beverage and a book or TV series. In the summertime, I ride a tandem bicycle with my husband, lounge in our little pool, and have BBQs with friends and family.
