More About Carrolle

Carrolle Rushford owns Rushford & Associates, a Denver-based training and consulting firm. She is a motivational speaker who also conducts training in the areas of management skills, career planning, motivation, communications, time management, diversity, equal employment opportunity and identifying and preventing sexual harassment.

Carrolle has an interesting and varied background and can readily relate to Federal employees. She has 13 years of Federal service with four different agencies. She began her Federal career as a GS-3 clerk-typist with the Veteran's Administration in Helena, Montana after graduating from high school.

Her first time in college, Carrolle studied music, but later went on to get a degree in Business Administration, graduating from the University of Montana in Missoula. She graduated with honors and returned to Helena where she worked first for the Internal Revenue Service, then as a fiscal analyst on a research project under the Governors office.

She moved to Denver in 1975, taking a job as a trainer for the US Office of Personnel Management. This was when she decided that her real calling in life was to help people develop skills to make them happier and more successful. After five years with OPM, Carrolle worked for three years as an Equal Opportunity Specialist for the Federal Highway Administration as she made plans to start her own consulting business.

And in 1983, she did just that. She quit another good-paying Federal job (as her Mom used to say) and the rest is history.

Carrolle has received numerous awards over the years for her training and her support of equal opportunity. She has presented training in 43 of the 50 states, in Mexico, Germany, Hungary and Japan.
