More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
When I partner with people, you are in the driver's seat. I’m here to listen and support you, and to follow your lead on what’s important to you. Then, we work together to identify goals and come up with a plan to help make those goals a reality. It’s my role to help connect you to the services and support you need to lead the best life possible.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I am very passionate about helping people self direct their care because it’s the route I would take for myself. Seeing people in the driver seat and helping them make informed choices is very rewarding for me. It makes my heart happy to see people living the life they want to live. Being a part of helping make that happen for people is very rewarding – kind of like food for the soul!
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My education as well as my personal and professional experiences have prepared me to be a great IRIS Consultant for you. I’ve worked with a wide variety of people from many different cultures and economic backgrounds. I’ve learned that everyone has a story to tell, and everyone has things they want to achieve. Sometimes the hard part for people is finding someone to listen. I am a good listener - and want to hear people's stories. Building trust and rapport with people is invaluable, as this is what helps people feel comfortable enough to share their story.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time, I like to be outside, and go on walks, camping, bike-riding, swimming - anything that gets me outdoors. I enjoy spending time with my dog and my family. I also like to read and take advantage of activities and events in the community.
