Collette Divitto, a 28 year young woman born with down syndrome and a lot of tenacity, a self made entrepreneur and disability advocate, founded Collettey's Inc after successfully starting her own business. Before going into business for herself, Collette had tried for years to find a paying job and experienced constant rejection and heartbreak. Collettey's Inc was born out of her first-hand understanding of the challenges that the disability community faces in trying to enter the workforce, and her desire to help others with different abilities find career success.
