He has a BA in Theological Studies and has worked at The Waysmeet Center going on 17 years.

Chuck loves to explore the mind, body, spirit connection and the effects living in the world has on those pieces. Embracing the ethos of The Waysmeet Center he likes to help empower those who are sometimes left behind by society. When not at The Waysmeet Center, Chuck spends much of his time teaching skills to people who have differing abilities. He is a firm believer in the fact that when you walk through the front door of the The Waysmeet Center, you should feel safe, invited, free to express your views, and ready for a good laugh.
