Hey...My name is Jill Berkery, and I am a junior year at Valdosta State University.   I am working on a degree from the Early Childhood and Reading Education Department.  I plan to get my masters in Guidance and Counseling from VSU.  I am excited about getting the opportunity to start working with young children in the next couple of semesters.

I was born and raised in Sarasota, Fl.  I am the middle child and only girl.  My older brother, Thomas, is going to college at Mississippi State University on a baseball scholarship.  My younger brother, Grant, is a senior at Sarasota High School.  My mother, Karon, is a 3rd grade teacher at Tuttle Elementary.  My father, Pete, is a Deputy Sheriff in Sarasota County.  

Flashing Rainbow Butterfly

I came to Valdosta State University on a volleyball scholarship.  I am a middle hitter on VSU's volleyball team.  The volleyball team is like a family away from home.  We travel all over Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Tennessee.  It has been a great experience so far.  I really enjoy Valdosta and hope to live here for a long time.

In my spare time I like to read Nicholas Sparks books, go to the beach, go shopping, and hang out with my friends.  Reading Nicholas Sparks books is a new hobby that I really enjoy.  I have lived 5 minutes from Siesta Key Beach my whole life so I am used to having the beach around.  Since I have been at school I enjoy the beach a lot more because there is not a beach in Valdosta.  I love to go shopping anytime and anywhere.
