More about Jillian Pritchard Cooke
JILLIAN PRITCHARD COOKE
With more than 35 years of experience in the home building and design industries, Jillian was driven by her own journey with cancer to found Wellness Within Your Walls® (WWYW), an award-winning informational resource group, which created a ground-breaking program designed to reduce toxins in living environments. An environmental-cancer diagnosis led Jillian to use her years of experience as the head of an interior design firm, DES-SYN, and think outside the energy-efficiency box to consider how the materials we use to build, specify and furnish homes might be making us sick. The resulting WWYW standard reframes the construction conversation and outlines proper construction techniques and healthier design and building practices, as well as behavioral strategies to ensure sustained wellness. Along with her WWYW team, Jillian developed WWYW's Healthy Living System™ (HLS), which sets forth 10 holistic steps for achieving health and wellness in homes and communities.
