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 UF Arts in Medicine's Theatre Connect program. Holland also collaborated with Center faculty in co-writing the play, “Voices from the March,” which is a dramatization of their experience documenting the 2017 Women’s March on Washington—a fieldwork trip Holland led through their work with UF’s Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies.
A mental health counselor by training, Holland enjoyed incorporating creativity and the arts in their work with UF’s Department of Psychiatry (Division of Psychology at Springhill II), as well as informing Theatre Connect programming with their experience working in the mental health field. Holland is happiest in nature and credits their time volunteering with UF’s Therapeutic Horticulture Program as the catalyst for their continued interest in using horticulture activities to promote creativity and wellness.
