Holland is the admissions assistant at the Center for Arts in Medicine. They earned their B.A. in History and M.Ed./ Ed.S. in Mental Health Counseling at the University of Florida. Prior to joining the Center’s staff, Holland served as a mental health facilitator for the Center’s Theatre Connect programming. Holland also collaborated with Center faculty in co-writing the play, “Voices from the March,” a dramatization of their experience documenting the Women’s March on Washington in 2017—a fieldwork trip Holland led through their work with UF’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and Center for Gender, Sexualities and Women’s Studies Research.
A mental health counselor by training, Holland enjoyed incorporating creativity and the arts in their work with UF’s Division of Psychology at Springhill, as well informing Theatre Connect programming with their experience working in the mental health field. Holland is happiest in the garden and credits their time volunteering with UF’s Therapeutic Horticulture Program as the catalyst for their continued interest in using horticultural activities as one of their favorite forms of creative expression.
