More about me

How do you Partner with people to 'clear the path ahead'?
In my role as a TMG IRIS Consultant, I help the people I partner with clear the path ahead by guiding them through the process of self-direction and self-advocacy, which helps them strengthen those skills in their lives.

What's your favorite thing about being an IRIS consultant?
My favorite thing about being an IRIS Consultant is getting to know the people I partner with, what goals they have set for themselves, and helping them work towards reaching those goals.

What past experience prepared you to become an IRIS Consultant?
My work experience in schools and working one-on-one as a caregiver has prepared me to be a knowledgeable and passionate TMG IRIS Consultant. I’m excited to get to know you and work together to help you live the life you choose.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I am a mother of three, so for me that means all of their hobbies are my hobbies! Currently, this includes basketball, pottery and dinosaurs. I also love to cook and read memoirs/autobiographies about women of color. I also have a passion for social justice, specifically on how to be an advocate for LGBTQ issues and the issues of poverty that plague black and brown communities.
