Holly has worked at the highest levels of state government, and maintains excellent relationships with decision-makers across the political spectrum. Her combination of government and private sector legal experience means she sees the full, start-to-finish picture of her clients' problems and opportunities.

Holly most recently served as Chief of Staff to Governor Paul LePage. In that role, she managed the team of policy advisors, legal counsel, and communications specialists that made the office run. She also developed relationships with executive branch officials and private sector leaders across the country and internationally. Holly also previously served as Governor LePage's advisor on health, welfare, insurance, professional licensing, and financial regulation. 

Interspersed with her government service, Holly completed multiple stints at Preti Flaherty, first as a Portland-based trial lawyer focusing on medical malpractice defense and healthcare licensing board representation. During that time, she was recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star three successive years. She later joined the firm's Augusta office, where she lobbied for healthcare and insurance clients, assisted companies in various industries with business development and government procurement, and represented healthcare clients before Maine's professional licensing boards. 

Holly graduated with honors from the University of Maine School of Law in 2005, where she was recognized for her skills in both trial and appellate advocacy. She received her Bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania, with a double major in International Relations and French Studies. 

Holly is admitted to practice law in Maine, Massachusetts (inactive), the U.S. District Court for the District of Maine, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
