In all things, Holly is motivated by helping people connect more deeply to their self and others. She enjoys seeing the process of learning unfold in unique ways that respect and honor each person, all communities, and the world as a whole.
Holly spends her leisure time reading, writing, dancing, and learning archery as a mindful practice.
