Who is Holly?
A unique success story
Holly has over 25 years professional
experience in the communications,
customer service and entertainment
industries. In addition, she is a
successful entrepreneur and has
owned her own company since 2002.
From being the frantic mother of a toddler working for someone else, to being self-employed and semi-retired (thanks to balloons!) by 40, her unique and upbeat style leaves attendees energized and uplifted.
Through a series of events Holly ended up living a life (and making a living in life!) by doing some of her favorite things. She did not plan all this (who could?), it all grew out of her combined passions.
Her entrepreneurial pursuits began with the classic lemonade stand at 4yo where she had two partners and was appointed marketing director--skipping and singing around the block advertising their services.
She has always liked to gab and in elementary school would constantly get in trouble for her chatty ways. She would get punished and sent to the back of the classroom, but always managed to make new friends back there, too. Her report cards included teacher comments that said: "Holly is an excellent student, but she is too social in class."
Lesson: Never underestimate the supposed weaknesses of youth, sometimes they become our greatest attributes later in life!
Fast forward to the present
With her company based in the Chicago area, she has been able to offer the creative and colorful world of balloons, the exotic and exhuberant culture of Hawaii, and the power and persuasion of stories.
Business evolved and so did she.
Holly most recently has been able to offer her expertise in the format of professional speaking where she specializes in nonverbal communication and utilizes her award winning talents as a balloon sculptor. She will engage audiences with specific ways to become better communicators by providing fresh experiential exercises in non-threatening and fun ways.
Her welcoming personality and easy-going demeanor endear her to all types of crowds and clients, from the corporate breakout session to the backyard birthday party.
She is an accomplished business woman, wife and mother of one. Well, mother of two. It depends on the day.
