Holly was born and raised in Oakland and she graduated from San Francisco State. Holly secretly wants to be a Celebrity Chef, but instead has tried three times, unsuccessfully, to make homemade granola. Holly loves sushi, pasta, and Hawaiian Shave Ice (complete with azuki beans and vanilla ice cream). She loves watching the Food Network and is always looking for a good restaurant recommendation. “Someday before I die, I want to eat at French Laundry.”
After studying French for 12 years, Holly is now trying to learn Italian and she is taking a “latent” interest in Renaissance Art. While it’s been years since she was last on a dive boat, she enjoys scuba diving tropical waters in Fiji, Honduras, Great Barrier Reef, St. Martin and Hawaii. ” I would love to someday dive a World War II wreck in the South Pacific.”
“I recently finished my first 5K run in Golden Gate Park but I kept a Muni token in my pocket just in case I needed a ride to the finish line. I’m trying to cultivate my running as a way to balance out my food interests and so far its not working.”

“I got Ed Bradley, Bill Moyers and Walter Cronkite’s autographs on the same page. Twenty years later at the Democratic Convention in Boston I still got butterflies when CBS News’ Bob Schieffer strolled by.”
“It is my privilege to experience first hand the key moments in Bay Area history like San Francisco’s Gay Marriage and bring those human stories to our listeners.
