Service Description

While in the Federal government workforce, Holly's roles included Office Manager for NOAA-GSD-ITS, and Executive Assistant for Asst. Regional Directors of USDA-APHIS-PPQ.
Holly is known for quick, efficient, detail-oriented work, and an outstanding ability to intuitively learn new processes and applications without training or special instruction.
She managed a departmental budget ($4mil) as well as responsible for all purchasing and inventory. Her administrative skills run the full gamut from word-processing, composition, editing/proofing, database creation and editing, to desktop publishing and customer service. At one point she created upper-level management presentations and taught classes on PowerPoint use.

As an administrative professional, she can handle most computer operating systems and platforms (Microsoft, Corel, Linux, Adobe), and is known for her meticulous and unique online research abilities.

Holly has also worked extensively with community nonprofit and NGO's as an event planner and fund-raising coordinator. In grassroots campaigns, she has successfully organized teams of up to 20 individuals for public relation events. Holly also helped organize a local currency project, to encourage community barter and trade as an alternative to traditional commerce.

As a professional Naturalist, Holly created unique family nature programs at park sites. She is also well-versed in brochure and PR paperwork design.

Now married and working out of her home,...
