Hi, I'm Austin!

My name is Austin Hetrick, and I'm the newest addition to SmokeFree Wisconsin's team! Originally from Indiana, I'm a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin studying English and Secondary Education. I'm here at SFW because I'm passionate about protecting non-smokers like my step-mom, Pam, who died of a smoker's cancer in 2005. Together with my father, grandfather, and much of our family, smoke-free legislation in Indiana (and now Wisconsin) has become a cause we regularly discuss and fight for. Through this blog (and the rest of SFW's activities), I hope to keep fighting for clean air and safer workplaces.
