Our Mission:

To empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment and entrepreneurship.

I’m Ryan! My wife Christina is there on the left. Sandwiched in the middle… that’s my big sister, Nicole.

Nicole has an eye for design, a passion for people, and a heart of gold. Oh, and she also has Down syndrome.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. In 2015, I formed a small business called Fratello Consulting Group in an effort to create more meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for my sister and others in our community.
