Faces of LIFE- Sherybel Berrios-Ramos
If you were to put a pin in a map that shows where all the students enrolled in Life U are from, the pins would dot all over as a colorful testament to our diverse campus culture. Many of those pins would land in Puerto Rico, like it would for Sherybel Berrios-Ramos, who is from the capital of San Juan.
Faces of Life – Cheyanne Nance-Butler
Community involvement and making a positive difference means a lot to Cheyanne Nance-Butler. From the beginning of her time here at Life U, she has strived to give back in excellence and out of abundance. Nance-Butler grew up in Portland, Oregon with her brother and her mom. She made her way to Life U by way of South Carolina and a fateful chiropractic assistant position that inspired her to pursue a chiropractic career.

Faces of LIFE: Amber Jackson
“I see my son who constantly talks about being under chiropractic care. I mean this 7-year-old understands some of the chiropractic principles,” she shared. “So, the ripple effect from what my education has been able to offer has a hold in every part of my life.”
Jesslian Rosa Rosado
“When I came to LIFE Leadership Weekend, the Student Ambassadors were a key thing for my decision to come here because seeing all of their stories and struggles, them still finding a way to be here and do what they love inspired me,” she shared. “They left a mark in me that made me want to be able to do that to other people.” Rosado became a Student Ambassador in order to work with prospective students and guests to give them the amazing experience that she had.
For Nick Shelby, becoming a chiropractor is a family affair. Shelby’s father and uncle both graduated from Life University. Regardless of that history, Shelby made the decision to pursue the profession on his own.
My 1st Quarter: Amber Jackson
I would tell myself, “Don’t give up. Things are going to be hard, but they’re going to be hard for a reason, and they’re going to be necessary and are all growth opportunities. Do not run from adversity – welcome it. Those hard challenges, those mountains are worth the climb.”
Kjell Paris is a 12th quarter Doctor of Chiropractic Student at Life University. He is from Braunschweig, Germany and has a brother who is two and a half years younger who is also in the DC program. “My dad is a chiropractor, and my mom is an elementary school teacher, so we are ‘chiropractic babies.’” Paris shared. “We were adjusted the first day we were born, which is pretty awesome.”
“I want everyone to know that no matter how humble your beginnings are, you can do anything you want to.” Graduating later this year with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Marleny Espinosa is a prime example of this adage.
