Missy Turner, 36
Before her incarceration, Missy had a hard time finding work due to a disability. Upon release, she went to rehab and then completed training to support others in sobriety. Missy is a college graduate, but most of the positions available to her so far have involved standing or physical labor. These are harder for her to do because of her disability. She is confident she can do well in a non-physical role if given the chance.
