    Our company utilized Ms. Rutter to provide us with a consultation on various employee benefit plans and regulations related to HIPPA/COBRA. Ms. Rutter was prompt, professional, personable, and knowledgeable of the subject matter. I recommend Ms. Rutter to other business owners/managers/HR personnel.
