Life without limits
Kelli Stansell loves a good adventure. So when she started looking for a college that would help her chart a voyage of self discovery, Berry was the natural choice.
"I can’t say there are any boundaries at Berry," she stated, "only doors being opened."
Kelli dreams of a career combining outdoor adventure with opportunities to share her Christian faith. Through her involvement in the Berry Outdoor Leadership Development (BOLD) program, she gained valuable firsthand experience that will help her achieve that goal.
As a BOLD instructor, Kelli had the opportunity to build connections within her prospective industry while helping others to push their limits through adventure-based activities such as rock climbing, back packing, whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing. She also put her outdoor skills to good use off campus as a guide and facilitator for Higher Ground USA, an adventure-based company with a Christian worldview, and as a program director at YMCA’s Camp High Harbour in Clayton, Ga.
