Billy dedicates every other week of his life to the students at PQ.  As a field staff, he is responsible for the students safety and therapy, as well as teaching them the hard/soft skills they need throughout the program and life.  Billy has a passion for working with adolescents and it shows.

Billy has inspired students in the past to take care of their health and use exercise as a means of releasing tension and maintain well being.  Students engage in daily exercise at PQ as a means of addressing holistic health.  Billy models healthy living in the day to day.  In fact, the day he won the marathon he was on a short break from PQ for the day.  Great determination and modeling!  Nice work Billy!
