More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
By Partnering with individuals in the IRIS Program, my goal is to learn what is important to them and what goals/dreams they are hoping to obtain within their life. We will then discuss the supports that the individual already has in place as natural supports towards reaching these goals and what services/supports are still needed to help reach these goals.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I believe that everyone has the right to choose the path that is best for them. I love my job as I am able to partner with individuals in the IRIS Program to help them realize their best life comes from within them and we worked together to find the best path to get there.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
I feel that my work experience with those with physical and cognitive difficulties as well as personal experiences with aging grandparents have given me the ability to listen and to understand that everyone has a different idea of what their best life looks like and that there are many ways to reach that for everyone.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy spending time at our cabin up north and being in nature. We also enjoy playing board games and really any activity that involves being together. When I am by myself, I enjoy scrapbooking as this is a way to revisit the memories I have made throughout the year.
