Jane Ruh is very excited to bring her direct experience and dedication to serving IRIS participants to her position as an IRIS consultant for Connections. She brings more than 20 years of work and personal experience to this position. Jane previously served for six-plus years as an IRIS consultant working with people from numerous cultures and diverse social backgrounds, including Hmong, Russian and Palestinian participants.
In addition, Jane managed a staff of 13 caregivers working within her home to care for her nonverbal quadriplegic son with very complex needs. Plus, Jane supports her mother to meet her long-term care needs in her home.
She feels exhilarated when she can partner with a person to achieve his or her greatest goals, whether it’s finding free or minimal cost social events, day services or day care within their community, achieving a driver’s license, finding a job or going to school. Jane also feels joy in helping a woman or man get connected with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and realize his or her dreams of community-based employment.
Jane embraces the self-direction aspect of the IRIS program, and is excited to help individuals to self-direct support and services as an IRIS consultant team member. She cares about spending time getting to know people, and she has strong beliefs regarding people living their lives to the fullest and having control over how they want to live.
In her spare time, Jane loves spending time with her family and grandchildren, gardening, going to Harley-Davidson events on her motorcycle, and she enjoys preserving her own food/jams and baking cheesecakes.
