Holly is a Science Communications Specialist for the Quinney College of Natural Resources at Utah State University. A geographer by training, Holly received her master's degree from the University of Colorado. In the early 90s she led tours to nature reserves in the former Soviet Republic.

Over twenty years of professional work in great places with unique habitats and endemic species has given Holly an appreciation of what's special within the Utah landscape.
