About Me

I'm Holly.

I love putting the pieces together to make projects tick. I value the details in every project because those details make the magic. During my time as a student, I discovered my passion for media and connection planning which I paired with my editorial passions as the executive director of a student-run magazine. Our focus was on music, local happenings, and the people in our neighborhoods that were doing incredible work.

Now, when I’m not working, you can find me making a new playlist on Spotify, working my way through one of Bon Appétit’s Rent Week recipes, biking around the lakes, or absolutely crushing it at music trivia. Here are some other quick facts about me: 

  • 22.

  • I host TED talk parties for my friends and have purchased a clicker exclusively for them.

  • I like the nickname "Hol" despite it only being two letters shorter than my full name.

  • It started as an experiment, but I’ve had bangs for over a year now.


My work experiences and opportunities have all contributed to my agility as a strategist and marketer.
