We would like to introduce everyone to Summit DD’s newest Investigative Agent, Marc Coletta.

Marc started with the MUI Department in June 2021. Prior to that, Marc worked as a SSA with Summit DD for two years. He also has seven years of investigative experience as a probation officer with the Summit County Court of Common Pleas.

“As an SSA, I learned about our individuals, their lives, what they like or don’t like, and what they need.  I learned all about the provider network and how important they are in assisting our individuals in everyday life,” shared Coletta. “All my professional experiences have helped and continue to help me in my new role as an Investigative Agent in the MUI Department.”

Marc is passionate about helping to protect those we all serve, and we are excited to have him as a member of our team. When you have a chance to meet Marc, please take a moment to welcome him to Team MUI!
