About Us


Our Story

Dr. Anita Rothard and Donald Rothard, Founders

After working for over 30 years helping people with disabilities get their life back on track, it was time for my husband and I to retire. My husband looked at me with surprise on his face and said, "You can't do that, there is still too much we can do to help others." That is how Red Lion Jobs, Inc., came into being. Our "Retirement" started with the idea that we could start a small business doing one-on-one job placement and assist those who were having problems finding a job, actually get a job. That was five years ago.

Red Lion Jobs, Inc., has grown into a great not-for-profit Florida business. It's helping the community of disabled Floridians, as well as local businesses find an excellent employment resource. I'm happy Donald and I have been able to make this vision come to life.
