Welcome to the Neighborhood
Gretchen Cook is the new Program Assistant in the Office of Student Services. She comes to us with a good understanding of the University since she worked at the Career Center for the past three years as a Peer Advisor, and Office Assistant. In June she finished dual BA degrees in Design Studies (design theory, visual communication emphasis) and Women Studies here at the UW. She has completed her training to become a certified birth doula, and is slowly working on attending births to complete the certification. When she is not working, Cook enjoys quiet weekends at home with her husband, Andy. She has a zeal for the crafty/handmade side of life, and can often be found with many projects on her knitting needles, working on a quilt or two, or making something fabulous in the kitchen.
