Aside from journalism, another love of hers is the beach. Holly enjoys running at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, practicing yoga, and stand-up paddleboarding. Holly's life wouldn't be complete without spending time with family, friends, and of course with her pets, Browning and Me-mow (Australian Shepherd and house cat). Holly is proud to be a VB local - and lover of the ocean.
