About Holly

I’ve spent many years working in and exploring different career fields. I have a degree in advertising and design. I started out working as a production assistant on a TV news program. While I was there I was a camera operator, chyron operator and floor director. It is a fast paced field that requires you to be able to react in an instant. If a piece of equipment fails or a live shot is lost, you have to keep going with the next thing as though nothing happened. After a few years of that I decided to become a graphic artist. As a graphic artist I created logos, signs, and advertisements. It allowed me to flex my creative muscles. I used computer graphics programs to create an image for companies. In the process I began to see how important it image is for a company. If the branding conveys the right image, the product sells, if not it usually doesn’t.

After considering the image my life was reflecting, I decided to do something a little more meaningful. I realized that I wanted to help people, so I became a teacher. Teaching is one of those things I had thought only people who can’t do anything else do. I couldn’t have more wrong. Teaching is by far the most challenging and rewarding careers I’ve had. As a teacher I got to combine my prior experiences and help kids become productive members of society. It’s always rewarding to look back over a year and see how much knowledge, skill, motivation, and creativity, I’ve given to my students.

I worked as an ESOL teacher in Slovakia with the Peace Corp. Then went on to teach English for a year in Arizona.

I have been working as a graphic artist for the last 4 years.
