Irene grew up in Denver, Colorado but also spent some time in the Czech Republic. Czech was Irene’s first language, but she did not retain any accent. Irene is a graduate of Klamath Community College, as well as Oregon Institute of Technology, where she earned her Bachelor’s in Applied Psychology. After graduation, Irene and her husband returned to Colorado for a few years; and then moved back to Klamath for a quieter life in mid-2022. Irene has been in the psychology/social services field since 2014 and is passionate about being an advocate for individuals with I/DD.
Outside of work, Irene enjoys traveling, gardening, camping, kayaking, gem and mineral collecting, visiting the ocean & spending time with her husband and K9 fur-baby, Bandit.
Irene is passionate about this field and is very excited to be a part of such a wonderful team at Connections Case Management!
