Holly works with our North American partners to ensure great experiences in Israel for our program participants. Israel holds a special place in Holly’s heart as she recently returned from a Masa Israel Teaching Fellowship where she lived and taught English in Haifa for one year. While in Israel Holly spent her weekends gaining cultural and spiritual enrichment traveling to holy and historical destinations such as Tzfat, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Eilat, Mitzpe Ramon, and the Golan Heights.
Holly holds a master’s degree in Higher Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from James Madison University. She has experience working in student engagement, academic advising, international programs, and service learning on college campuses. Prior to joining the Onward Israel Team, Holly worked at the Girl Scouts of Colorado, where she encouraged the growth and empowerment of girls and women through recruitment and placement of new members.
Holly believes in fostering a global mindset amongst young adults and is passionate about women’s empowerment. In her free time, you can find Holly paddle boarding with her dog Charlie, learning עברית, practicing meditation, or planning her next travel adventure.
