Iris Fanning, Counselor

Iris Fanning began her career counseling urban Native American students at Manzano and Del Norte high schools where she worked with three or more generations within the families. Then she served at Hubert Humphrey Elementary, which was lots of fun for 11 years. Next was the fun of working with middle school students, their parents and staff at Hoover.  Then, to round out her 28-year career she joined the dynamic family counseling providers primarily working with the La Cueva cluster.  

While Iris is retiring from APS, she also considers this a launch. She is a graduate of Coach University, an accredited two-year life and business coaching school. She’s written and self-published three books and hosts an online radio show. This year she also is taking a one-year interior design program. Iris is anticipating coaching, writing, giving workshops and doing affordable interior design for the DIY. If you’d like to attend her celebration, it’s at her home.
