Gretchen Williamson

Founder/ Director/ President

 Gretchen Williamson founded Packing Hope in the fall of 2020. Along with her work at Packing Hope, Gretchen is a Boone County CASA and Registered Nurse.  She is the wife to Brandon Williamson; they have 4 children (Jayden, Josiah, Ty and Jase). They are lifelong Boone County residents.


As a former foster and now adoptive mom of four amazing children, Gretchen knows the value of having the right resources, support and people by your side on your journey.


In her free time,  you're likely spot her in the stands at football, basketball and baseball games or wrestling meets proudly playing the role of the biggest supporter of her Williamson boys. When at home, she's curled up on the couch, with her dog Teddy, reading a good book.
