Jessica Turley is a graduate of Central Michigan University with a degree in education and a concentration in School Health and Special education. She began with the MMI as a Youth Transitions Specialist in 2017. Jessica began with one school district in one county and has expanded into five schools in multiple counties. Her passion is to work with a diverse population and she is known in her schools for her ability to adapt materials to meet the wide range of needs of the students. MMI is excited about this program. It started with a small pilot project in the spring of 2017 and has continued to grow. Presently we have served over 200 students through out seven counties and have been asked to present our program to more areas that have an interest. All this helps MMI in our mission of Developing inclusive communities and meaningful connections through employment and training.
