Grahamite begins welding career
Andrea Cook from Graham moved to San Diego to start a new career.
Cook, a former theatre major, enrolled in San Diego Continuing Education’s free welding certificate program with a goal of starting her own architectural lighting design business.
“I was about to be a theatre teacher but endured health problems so I left and never went back,” Cook said. “I have a big craft side and welding was always something I wanted to do. I used to build lighting and stages for my school’s arts department.”
She also tried her hand at waitressing for many years but sought something with more growing potential.
“I’m a lifelong waitress. I’m good at it but there is no room to grow,” Cook said. “With Welding I can always learn something new.”
