Iris was born in Mexico and moved to Heber when she was 3 years old. She was raised in this beautiful valley and is currently attending Utah Valley University for Bioengineering.
Iris is extremely passionate about breaking the stigma surrounding mental health. Having grown up in the Hispanic community, mental health is never talked about but almost everyone struggles with it.
Prior to Cascade Iris hadn’t worked in this field but since being introduced to it, she is hooked! Her favorite part about working here is that in just a few months you start to see the kids grow, learn, and gain confidence. This is what continues to motivate her.
In her free time Iris loves to spend time with her boyfriend trying out new restaurants. She likes to hammock and read. Spending time with her family is very important! She also enjoys painting and drawing.
