Meet Turn90

Meet our team

Amy Barch
Founder and Executive Director

Amy was supposed to be a lawyer. But when an internship during her junior year at the University of Washington landed her a tutoring position at the local jail, everything changed. She dedicated her life to leveling the playing field for formerly incarcerated men. She launched a nonprofit and has helped it grow to serve hundreds of men returning from prison to the South Carolina Lowcountry.
