My vision for Newberry is for it to continue on its path in becoming a culturally rich community that offers its residents and visitors a vibrant environment that delights in fellowship, food, spirits, sports, and entertainment with a deep appreciation of artisan cottage industries!

The advice I would give my 20-year old self is to to OWN your mistakes, FORGIVE yourself and LEARN from them!

You would be surprised to know that I am an devoted kayaker!
