Holly served on the Houston Independent School District (HISD) school board for five years, demonstrating her dedication to education and commitment to improving the lives of families in her community. Currently, she is an executive for a Fortune 100 company. She has a proven track record of fighting for the needs of her constituents and making a positive impact in her community.


Holly grew up in a working-class family in a small town in rural Ohio after her mother immigrated to the United States from Colombia. She is the first in her family to go to college, earning bachelor’s degrees in Latin American and Caribbean studies and Sports Management and Communications from the University of Michigan, and a master’s degree in Social-Organizational Psychology from Columbia University.


Holly began her career in education in 2004 at the Houston Independent School District where she worked for Teach for America as a bilingual pre-kindergarten teacher. She taught bilingual and dual-language early-childhood classes for six years in Houston’s public schools. Holly transitioned into the private sector, continuing her work in educational development. She has consulted with urban school districts across the United States regarding strategy, the implementation of software programming, districtwide evaluation systems, virtual and blended learning environments, and human capital development.


Currently, Holly works as a Performance Infrastructure Executive for Johnson Controls, Inc. where she constantly examines ways to improve crucial infrastructure in a cost-effective and responsible manner. Throughout her career she has honed skills in operational efficiency and responsible budgeting, two qualities she brings with her to Houston City Council.
