Liv Thomas

Graduate Staff Assistant

Here in Honors, I… manage the front desk of the Honors office, if you stop by during the week I’ll likely be there to welcome you into our space! I also respond to email and telephone inquiries to answer questions about Honors and guide people to the appropriate resources. I additionally support the Academic Services and Admissions teams with projects and assemble information for the Honors blog. It’s also my job to make sure the office is clean and comfortable for all of our students, staff, and faculty!

I like thinking about & studying… anti-carceral approaches to advocacy and care. As a second-year Master’s student in the School of Social Work, I chose to specialize in the Community-Centered Integrative Practice track. I am particularly interested in collective birth work and postpartum practices and hope to complete my doula training once I graduate from UW! Outside of the classroom, I love learning about the plants native to our region, mutual aid practices, and household DIYs.

My first week in college… I signed up for way too many clubs and activities! I was so excited to start making connections and step out of my comfort zone that I went a bit overboard. Although it was overwhelming to narrow down my list of commitments, once I figured out what I was really interested in I had a great time. One of my boldest choices was to play Women’s Rugby, where I ended up meeting many people who are still some of my closest friends.
