About Me

Hi, I’m Holly

The About Me page has always stumped me. What’s important to know? You might be interested to know that I hold a degree in Mass Communications where I focused on Journalism. But my *almost* double-major in Business Administration has served me pretty well. After college, I found that the newsroom didn’t light a spark within me, and I kept searching for alternative passions. I moved from the Black Hills of South Dakota to the high desert of central Oregon. I dabbled in yoga, wellness writing for the local weekly newspaper, and growing cannabis for medical patients. 

I then found myself working for a start-up cannabis company here in Bend. Initially, I was just developing some content, but soon took on the role of lead salesperson. From there, I built the statewide sales team, working hand-in-hand with the marketing and creative departments, and landing in the positions of Sales Director and Brand Director in my final years. What an incredible learning experience that was! 

When I left the company, I wanted to get back to my roots — writing. I adore stringing words together into coherent works of art that captivate and compel. Having learned a thing or two about branding, marketing, and sales, I took my writing to the next level. I am currently studying to complete my OMCA certification for digital marketers to uplevel my digital marketing skills. 

I created postgold because I believe small businesses have a lot on their plate, and I am so great at helping brands achieve their sales and marketing goals. Developing educational, engaging content is a true JOY for me. Postgold is continually evolving, and I’m excited to share many new things with you in the months and years to come.

When I’m not working, I’m likely gardening, performing all sorts of kitchen witchery, studying on the Bruja Report, or spending time outdoors with my husband, stepdaughter, three dogs, and a cat named Bob. I hope to see you out in the real world.

In good health,

-Holly
