I began my Health care career as a Candy Aide Volunteer at Gracedale County Nursing Home. Gaining great experience allowing me to be accepted into Vocational Technical School in my junior year of High School and graduated from the Nursing Program. College classes and a fantastic instructor created a solid learning experience both in class and clinical. I received my Diploma with a 4.0 grade. My counselor offered me a full time job with a Chiropractic office and completed Physical exams, intakes and physical therapy. I then started working with Praxis as a Living Unit and Occupational Aide with Mentally challenged adults. I ran the Occupational Therapy Department and was Certified as a Recreational Therapist. Shifting gears I began working at a 5 Doctor Practice Animal Hospital for all exotic and small animals. Quickly moving my way up I found a passion for Pharmaceuticals. This path allowed me work for The Butler Company as a a very successful Pharmaceuticals Representative and Territory Manger transferring me to Florida. I worked full time while raising my beautiful children. I have moved to Washington in 2014. And began working for Volunteers of America as a Direct Suppot Professional for development disabled adults. Loving the area I went back to my most rewarding position. Providing quality care and support to my clients and their family. I have relocated back to Florida to provide support to my Mother. My customer's as a Job Coach and then promoted Employment Specialist for EmployU in Alachua and Levy Counties are my passion. I support my customer's with disabilities to obtain employment and give hope. I will forever continue to heal and support customers to the best of my abilities. It would be my honor to support your family member. Best Regards Colleen Rutt ... more
