About Me

A little bit about me…

Before becoming a clinical social worker and a chemical dependency counselor assistant, Scott “Colin” Winter served as an infantryman in the United States Army from October 2005 – August 2011. He completed two deployments in Baghdad, Iraq – his first tour was during the Surge from February 2007-May 2008 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and his second was during the campaign transition between OIF and Operation New Dawn (OND) from December 2009-December 2010. Colin served with 1st Infantry Division, 4th Brigade, 2/16 INF “Rangers” Battalion based out of Fort Riley, KS and 3rd Infantry Division, 1st Brigade, 3/69 AR Battalion based out of Fort Stewart, GA.

Colin has been involved around the Central Ohio community which started when he served as the Secretary, Vice-President, and President of Vets 4 Vets, the student-veteran organization at The Ohio State University. He also became a Community Veteran Advocate for the College of Social Work at The Ohio State University, which is a program to assist fellow student-veterans navigate and find community resources available at OSU. In addition to his involvement at OSU, Colin co-founded and is the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization named  Run Down The Demons® which was started to bring awareness to veteran-related mental health issues.

Colin remains committed to working with veterans and individuals from all populations who are in search of a helping hand.
