Michelle became active with New Leaf - New Life while being incarcerated and now wants to give back to the community by sharing her experience, strength, and hope with others. She has a passion to help others to see that they are not alone, and most need help to get back on their feet.  Michelle tries to pay it forward and encourages others to do the same.
Stacey Stultz
Life Skills Coach
A long-time Bloomington resident, Stacey is a recovering addict recently released from DOC.  Stacey was first introduced to New Leaf - New Life during her first incarceration and was astounded that there were people out there who believed she was more than just a number. Her goal now is to help someone when there seems to be no help; she wants to give back to my community.
