Reentry Mentor & Support Specialist
Originally from Ellettsville, IN, Misty has lived in Bloomington for the past 22 years. Having battled addiction herself, she understands the complex struggles of such things as substance misuse and houselessness. Today she lives a life centered around helping others seeking support to improve their quality of life. She’s very involved in her local recovery community, assisting women in helping maintain a life without drugs. She has two wonderful children and shares a home with her loving boyfriend and two parakeets, Jane and Charlie.
Volunteers play a crucial role in our mission, running enrichment classes in jail’s multipurpose room, and helping assist clients at the Transition Support Center. New Leaf – New Life could not function without its slate of volunteers!
