Favorite quote

"There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations—these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit—immortal horrors or everlasting splendors." – C.S. Lewis

Favorite thing about working with Berry students in LifeWorks

Teaching them not only the skills and attitudes needed to succeed but also teaching them to avoid the many mistakes I’ve made.
