More about me
How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
I am able to build rapport with the individuals I work with by actively listening to their needs and wants, asking questions, communicating professionally with them, and establishing services to meet their needs.
What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
I am excited to be part of an organization whose mission is to empower people to live meaningful lives in their communities. I feel an individual should be able to make decisions about their lives, as safely as possible, and live life to the fullest.
What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My previous employment was with a managed care organization. I completed assessments, care plans, long-term care functional screens, budgets related to self-directed supports and supportive home care agencies, and more. All of this has prepared me to be a knowledgeable and compassionate TMG IRIS Consultant. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I have two dogs that I consider my fur babies, and I spend a lot of time with them. Kona is a pit bull puppy and will be one years old on Valentine’s Day! Jagger (named after the Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones) is a German Shepherd/Husky Mix and we adopted him in 2018. During the summer, my fiancé and I enjoy taking the pups on walks by Lake Michigan. I also enjoy binge watching Netflix, exploring new restaurants, fishing, camping, making homemade candles, spending time with family, and watching football. Go Rams!
