This Former Prisoner-Turned-Life Coach Used Her Darkest Time to Create Something Positive
Ivy Woolf Turk was devastated when she was arrested for mortgage fraud in 2009. While serving time in federal prison, she discovered that most women prisoners were just like her—they had low self-esteem and were afraid to say no. Upon being released, Ivy discovered that re-entry into life after prison was actually worse than prison itself. She has since become a life coach who helps former prisoners navigate their new lives, teaching them the lesson she learned herself: let adversity become your greatest teacher.
