For Stephanie Taylor-Silva, helping people exiting Idaho prisons return to their lives is a personal matter.

Taylor-Silva was convicted in 2002 for trafficking drugs. After her release, and with the help of her parole officer, she worked to rebuild her life, earning pardons from Idaho and Montana and findingwork at the Idaho Department of Correction, the state agency that once imprisoned her.

Now she will be able to help others make that same transition as IDOC’s new reentry specialist in the Seventh Judicial District.
