As a fourth-generation Bobcat with deep ties to southeastern Ohio, Holly is a natural connector of alumni, employers and students.

She previously worked in Development for Leadership Annual Giving, as well as Alumni Engagement in the College of Business. Prior to that, Holly had a long career at Fifth Third Bank in Columbus, Ohio.
