Holly graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) in 2009 with her Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education-Natural Sciences with a concentration in Biology. She started working for the Disability Resource Center (DRC) as an undergraduate student worker mainly involved in video captioning, and has since found her niche and passion in working with students with disabilities. As the video captioning specialist, she recognized the need for being able to caption a wide array of video formats, and set forth to develop the resources the DRC now has to caption virtually any video format.
After graduating from UTC, she began working her way up the ranks at the DRC, being promoted to a live speech-to-text captionist, and ultimately moving on from there into her position as the Access Coordinator. She continues to strive to develop and improve delivery of services with regards to the deaf and hard of hearing, and also for exam accommodations working with students and faculty. Holly has also found a passion for providing educational opportunities about disability issues and disability services to the campus community and general public.
