About Dameon:

Dameon Berry from Union County, Tennessee is our East TN Regional FVC TN Coordinator. Berry is a third-generation cattle farmer, a U.S. Army veteran and dog trainer. Tennessee AgrAbility helped him with assistive technology to be more independent around his farm after an accident left him unable to walk and a quadriplegic.  Dameon wants to give back to help other veteran farmers find the resources that he learned are out there.

About Shae:
