More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
In order to be a successful partner, I take the time to first learn about you and your goals. Once those are clear, I will work with you to put together a plan that you are comfortable with. Then, we can start our journey to accomplish those goals in a way that maximizes your services and expands your budget.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
Self-directing your life is an important thing for all individuals to hold onto for as long as possible. Being able to help people determine their needs and provide a pathway that allows people to create and meet their goals on their own terms is a rewarding feeling for everyone involved.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
Working with people who are aging as well as people with disabilities of all ages, situations, and backgrounds has helped me to understand that no matter what obstacles you’re facing, striving to lead a life that is as happy, healthy, productive, and rewarding as possible is a goal we’re all capable of pursuing.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
My two young children and two dogs consume practically all my free time at home. On weekends, we like to venture out to visit family or take short trips to explore new things.
