More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
As your partner, my goal is to get to know you and the people that support and care for you. Getting to know you allows me to better help you identify your goals and your vision for how you want to live your life. Once your vision is in sight, as your TMG IRIS Consultant I will help move the things that are in your path that may be blocking you from seeing your vision clearer.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite part about being a TMG IRIS Consultant is moving the obstacles out of the way so people can choose their own path by hiring the people they trust. I believe people of all abilities deserve to have the freedom to enjoy their life as they see it. Helping people take ownership of their lives and how they want to live them brings me joy.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My education has helped me as a TMG IRIS Consultant, but my life have prepared me even more. As the primary caretaker of my terminally ill father, it was very important to us that he was able to direct the care and support he wanted despite his illness. It was important for him as well as those of us that supported in in living the life he wanted until it ended. In my previous position I helped families come up with their own community-based treatment plans that centered around their goals for their entire family. Although I was the writer of the plan, the families were the real authors of their plan.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy, reading, meditating, doing yoga, painting and creating jewelry and accessories.
