More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I believe that partnering requires a lot of trust and understanding. I always make sure I listen to people I partner with so that I can have understanding of what is most important to you and what's standing in your way. Then, we can create a plan to help you achieve your goals based on what support resources are available in your community, and use your IRIS budget as effectively as possible.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is being able to help people make a change. I love being able to help people find and maintain the resources that make a real difference in their lives and allow them to live their lives to the fullest.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I have experience working as a direct support professional for people with developmental disabilities, as well as working as a social worker in a nursing home setting and at an MCO. Providing direct support was very influential in my work now as I have a lot of compassion and understanding for caregivers who do an often thankless, but very important job. My work as a social worker in the nursing home and MCO settings has given me the experience and knowledge to provide resources and be a guide through long-term care support options.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
While I am generally a couch potato who loves to watch a little TV and snuggle with my two cats, I am a hobby hoarder. I love doing crafts like knitting, quilting, painting, and baking. I love to read and and working towards reading one thousand books in my lifetime. I like being in the outdoors for hiking, camping, swimming, and biking. My family and I are avid card game and board game players, and we could play for hours. I also love to travel since my family lives in many different parts of this country. My favorite part of traveling is going to zoos, museums, and live theater.
