"As a biology instructor, I enjoy leading the students through their "ah ha" moments,           guiding them through their mental pushups, and showing them the beauty of study              through the art of biology."

Before joining the Department in 2002, Holly taught science for ten years at Lincoln High School.  While earning her M.S. degree, she conducted a field study in the San Francisco Bay looking at some of the limiting factors--including substrate, salinity and predation--for the native oyser, Ostrea lurida.
