Jessica Berry is from Locust Point, one of Baltimore City’s many neighborhoods. She has lived in multiple states, but still feels that Baltimore is home and she joined the Gilead year as a way to give back to her home community. Jessica’s year of service was spent at Great Kids Farm, a 33 acre educational farm operated by Baltimore City Public Schools. She served as the Volunteer Coordinator and assisted the educational programming. Throughout her year, Jessica built classroom skills and confidence as she led groups of students through field trips that focused on nature, how food grows, and healthy eating. Upon completing the Gilead year, Jessica was hired by Kennedy Krieger Institute as a Special Education Assistant Teacher. She is now in her second year as a teaching assistant and starting her Masters in Special Education at Loyola University. She is in contact with Gileads from her year of service on a daily basis.
