Meet Jose Villegas: He came to the Berkshires to heal and found a community

Jose Villegas came to the Berkshires to heal.

Villegas grew up among the millions of people in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. He studied in Boston and Seattle, returned to his home country to work in its oil industry and then made his career in corporate banking in the United States.

“Having come from Caracas, a bustling city, I never thought I would leave the city for anything,” he says. “I knew next to nothing about the Berkshires.”
