She studied dance, singing, art, acting, tennis, softball and more thru the Girl's Club, Scottsdale Recreation Centers and various other locations. At just 15 y.o., she began her performing arts studies at Scottsdale Community College where she obtained an Associate of Applied Science in the Motion Picture and Television Production department with emphasis on Acting/Directing and Dance Technology, as well as an Associate of General Studies with Honors, PTK and High Distinction.

She loves architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, fashion design, hiking, kickboxing, yoga and trying new things. Being adaptable and creative are two strengths. If she can paint, photograph, or perform she'll be happy! Holly continues to develop her craft, knowledge, friendships and experience and looks forward to exciting new opportunities.
