Erin Riehle

Erin was Director of Cincinnati Children’s Emergency Department and felt that, because the hospital served individuals with developmental disabilities, it made sense that they should commit to hiring people in this group. Therefore she set up Project SEARCH in 1996 with Susie Rutkowski.

Erin is a recognized authority and national leader in promoting employment opportunities for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. She is a founder and Senior Director of Project SEARCH, an employment and transition program that has received national recognition for innovative practices pioneered under Ms. Riehle’s guidance.
