From Iron Bars to Ironman

by Tanya Reynolds, Kootenai Co. Drug Court Coordinator

Staci M. is truly an inspiration. She graduated from the Kootenai County Drug Court program in October of 2007. Approximately a year after her graduation, she joined the drug court team and attended every session for several years until her work schedule conflicted with the sessions.

Staci’s insight helped the team in staffings to shape appropriate sanctions and incentives. She has over eight years of sobriety and remains active in the recovery community.

To top all of this, she completed the Coeur d’Alene Ironman Triathlon in June 2014. This was her first Ironman competition and she’s already excited to compete in another one.

Staci has come a long way since her methamphetamine addiction which brought her into the drug court program. Pictures are worth a thousand words as can be seen comparing her June 2006 booking photograph with the person who stands before us today.

Way to go, Staci!
