More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
To be a good partner, I make sure to first get to know them, learn their experiences, find out what their goals are and what they hope to accomplish. Then, I’ll help you find all of the resources available to you, and assist you in choosing the services that best suit you needs and help you achieve your goals.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I enjoy helping people self-direct their care so that they can live independently in their home. I know how important self-directing your own care. That’s why it’s very fulfilling for me to help people have control over their care and knowing that they can come to me for resources. I enjoy seeing the people I partner with succeed and achieve goals that they have worked hard at.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I used to help take care of my aging grandma. I would help her manage her finances, clean up around the house when needed, and help her to set up services to assist with laundry, grocery shopping, bathing and cooking. It brought me great satisfaction knowing that I was able to help her maintain her independence, assist her in self-directing her own care, and more importantly, help make sure that she was able to remain in her own home, which I knew was so important to her.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and our children. I enjoy trying new recipes, spending time outside when the weather permits, and watching movies with my family.
