When she is not working, Holly enjoys fishing and spending most of her time doing anything outdoors including canoeing, kayaking, and hiking. Holly is a huge soccer fan, having played soccer in college, only recently hanging up her cleats after playing on local indoor and outdoor teams. She has a passion for traveling which has taken her all over the world including backpacking across Europe, camping in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, and on an all-womenâ€™s rafting trip in the Grand Canyon. Holly is originally from St. Joseph, Michigan and currently lives in Valparaiso, Indiana.
Philosophy Holly sees her job as a way to sort out the facts and find the truth about why someone suffered the tragedy that brought them to her office looking for help. The best part of her job is getting to know her clients on a personal level to help them find the answers and the peace they are looking for. Sometimes that peace comes from just knowing exactly what caused them harm and why it happened, and sometimes that peace comes from taking a case to trial and having a jury hold someone responsible for the harm they suffered.
