You have reached the website of Loretta Iris. I am here having integrated years of education, training and experience that authentically connects me to my vocation of serving human kind.

As a child I spent hours outdoors in my backyard which overlooked the Assiniboine* River. Every season was full of wonder. Watching birds landing and bugs interacting while clouds, wind and sun were shaping shadows in front of me brought a keen sense of awareness about the interconnectedness of all things. Whether happily playing or in tears from losing a toy, my backyard shaped a quiet, deep and clear curiosity in me about engaging human kindness. Gifts of play, connection, and a sense of determination reflected the space and beauty of my world of nature.

My life is spent cocreating these universal gifts with others.

You are invited to have fun playing here. Explore the different tabs to easily access information about my life of service. I value my family and their gifts. I have included my adult daughters, Victoria Iris, Jessica Iris and my teen son Deklan Iris-Hoscheit on this website as we expand our offerings of individual and family activities in support of joy and meaning for our local and global community.
