Holly: "The size of the city makes everything seem possible. I like being in the Capital, with art, restaurants, walkability, museums, and city resources"


Favorite restaurant recommendation?

Movie, Podcast and/or Book recommendations?

Why did you join CVA?

Holly: "It combines my knowledge of the nonprofit sector and desire to be a connector with my love of hosting and creating unique experiences for people"

When you aren't hard at work elevating the nonprofit community, what do you enjoy doing? Holly: "My bike groups have gotten me through the pandemic. I'm also doing business strategy and operations work and leading tours for BASKET & BIKE"
