Meet Iris

Hello and thank you for visiting my page. My life’s work has always revolved around helping people and I get pleasure out of seeing how my services can bring out the best in someone. My journey to IRIS ON THE GO is an interesting tale that began in north eastern U.S.A.

I grew up in New York and Connecticut. I obtained a B.S. in Communication Disorders from Emerson College in Boston. After graduating I lived and worked in Boston, including several years at Boston City Hall, loving being with older adults in the community as part of my work in "Commission on Affairs of the Elderly". When I moved to western Massachusetts, I was drawn to a volunteer opportunity at an adult day center where I assisted the Recreation Therapist. 'I knew I'd found my passion so I returned to school for a 'Certification in Elder Recreational Therapy. I spent over a decade working in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. I felt such fulfillment in this career, seeing how I was improving the lives of adults and bringing out the best in each individual with the compassion and commitment I show to them.

 

I journeyed to York County twenty-two years ago. With the move came a decision to expand the organizations and people I wanted to support. I started as an active volunteer for the York Jewish Community Center and then worked there for many years, with children and adults, on a wide range of Jewish topics, including Holocaust Education which I still do on a volunteer basis. I ran the Jewish Food and Film Festivals, and notably expanded the Center's adult group called the Tuesday Club by sourcing quality speakers, developing programs and implementing trips.

 

All of my past experience has led me to open my own business, IRIS ON THE GO! Providing a wide range of services to clients from all walks of life in different chapters of their lives allows me to use all of my skills and meet many amazing, wonderful, new clients every day. It really is a dream come true!

 

When I’m not working, I love to travel with my fiancé. We actually met while on a vacation in Ireland in 2014. We continue to travel abroad together and also take advantage of day trips around beautiful Pennsylvania. I enjoy cooking, listening to music, and spending time with dear friends and family – which includes my dog Molly, an adorable Shi Tzu-Yorkie that I adopted from the SPCA. I am an active member of the York JCC and Temple Beth Israel and love to sing in the choir!

 

Now that you know a little about me, I hope you contact me and let me know how I can make your life easier through errand services and much more!

Company Overview

I noticed that my friends and family were always talking about how they just didn’t have enough hours in the day to complete all of their responsibilities. Sadly, they would tend to sacrifice time with loved ones in order to do necessary errands. They were essential but did not bring them much joy in completing. This challenge gave me the idea for my next career venture­­ – to start my own business! Helping individuals get more done in a day while allowing them time to do what matters most to them fits perfectly into my key value of “servicing our community.” And so, in the fall of 2017, IRIS ON THE GO – Errand Services and More was created.
