Gretchen is pro-life and is a member of Feminists for Life. FFL says, “Abortion is a reflection that we have not met the needs of women,” and they seek to find ways to meet those needs, making abortion unnecessary. “Established in 1972, Feminists for Life of America is a nonsectarian, nonpartisan, grassroots organization that seeks real solutions to the challenges women face. Our efforts are shaped by the core feminist values of justice, nondiscrimination, and nonviolence. Feminists for Life of America continues the tradition of early American feminists such as Susan B. Anthony, who opposed abortion.”


Gretchen earned a Bachelor’s of Science in music business at Millikin University and a Master’s of Library and Information Science from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
