Hollie got her start in the travel industry in 2010 when she joined a wholesale tour operator as a marketing & operations specialist. Their primary focus was Central America. She was forever changed by her travels to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Panama. She realized that traveling is so much more than just relaxing and sightseeing (although she loves doing both) – it’s a transformative experience. Each trip provided her with a chance to make new and interesting friends, to develop a deeper appreciation for this magnificent planet, and discover her most authentic self. She loves to share her travel stories and encourage others to create their own unique memories and dare to try something new. She is happiest when she’s helping others embark on experiences that dazzle and inspire. She lives in Austin, Texas with her other half, Mike, and her fur children (Otis & Etta). When she’s not traveling, she enjoys baking, gardening, camping, and reading. She is also an enthusiastic Texas Longhorn football fan. Hook ‘Em!
