More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
Partnering together is essential for the two of us to build and maintain a good relationship with each other. This means being able to communicate well and learning to trust one another. I want to assist you with creating goals and building an achievable plan that you agree with. I will work to help identify resources available to you and provide the supports needed with your IRIS budget. My goal is to assist you every step of the way by providing effective advice and supports required.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I genuinely enjoy working with people within my community and want to help make a difference. I believe in a self-directed care approach as it allows everyone to make their own decisions for their lives. Being able to help people have always given me such a rewarding feeling and honor to be a part of your life.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My education has given me much insight, and my work in the human services field has provided me with the skillset I have. I know it can be complicated and a scared feeling telling someone you don't know your business, but I am here to learn and explore with you to reach your common goal. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you clear the path ahead so that you can live the life you choose.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children and family. I also love to travel to different states and will soon be going out of the country. Currently, working out is becoming my new hobby as I want to be more physically fit.
