Holly enjoys consulting with managers on teambuilding, staff development, and performance management.

In 2016, she was nominated as a finalist for the annual CHRO of the Year award at the HRO Today International Conference.

“What I like best about working at Aspiranet is our staff and their dedication to the agency vision and values. While each of the Aspiranet core values resonates with me, respect is most important in building effective teams that value the diverse strengths and perspectives of our incredibly talented and committed staff.”
