Business Background: Holly has been a featured speaker on behavioral finance, economics, and the banking system, in diverse venues, from college classes to large groups of business owners. She has developed courses for instruction both at the university level and as CE for CPA’s.
In 2006, based on her experience gained over 20 years as a corporate and private banker, Holly concluded that small business owners and successful executives often have substantial unmet needs for integrated personal and business financial plans. Holly has built her practice around providing these clients sophisticated financial planning and access to professionals who implement this integration.
During her banking career, Holly was nominated by one of her clients and featured in Inc. magazine as a “Banker You’ll Love.”
Education: Holly holds 2 master’s degrees from the University of South Florida: an MBA in Finance and MIS (1998); and a Master of Arts in Economics (2007). She received her B.A. in Economics from Davidson College (1986). Holly has been a CFP® certificant since 2004.

In addition to serving on the faculty of NAPFA University’s Communications School, Holly’s other professional associations include the Tampa Bay Estate Planning Council (past Board Member), the National Speakers Association (Associate Member) and Toastmasters International (past Area Governor). She received recognition as a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) in May 2009. She is a 2006 graduate of Bob Pike’s Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp. She has trained sales professionals in public speaking at the Sandler Sales Institute in Tampa, Florida and has over 300 hours of professional sales training at the Institute. Her workshops and training now concentrate on learning to manage money conversations between husbands and wives; parents and kids; and clients and financial professionals.
