Holly is ready to get to work on the County Board. Serving her community is Holly's priority both professionally through her work in healthcare and as a community volunteer and leader. The coming months will be a real test of the resilience, strength and character of our community. Holly is honored and excited to have the opportunity to serve Dane County during these unprecedented times.
Holly has called Middleton her home since 2008. She relocated to the area from Northern Wisconsin where she raised her children and resided for twenty five years. She bought her home in Middleton, specifically to be near the beautiful Pheasant Branch Conservancy. She loves being part of such a vibrant and active community and is honored and humbled to be able to represent and serve the good people of District 26.
She is a Registered Nurse, receiving her Nursing degree at age 40 and graduating with honors from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College in Ashland, WI. She is an active community member, including serving on nursing committees and councils through her employer, volunteering as a longtime mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County, Delegate to the State Democratic Party, and serving as representative for her Assembly District for the Dane County Democrats Executive Board.
She currently works as a nurse at UW Hospitals and Clinics and has been employed there since relocating to the area in 2008. She is passionate about supporting and caring for her patients and is proud to work along side so many talented healthcare professionals.
She is a Mom and a Grandmother. Raising her kids as a single Mom, she is incredibly proud that her children both completed college and chose public service careers. Her daughter Megan is also a nurse and her son Dane is an educator. Her children and three grandchildren all happily reside in Dane County.
Holly's priorities are to build on our community support systems, protect the health and safety of our citizens, help families succeed, protect our natural resources, and work to create an equitable community for all to live and thrive.
