Meet Holly

Holly knows what it is like to need change having taken the “Journey North” herself.  She accepted Christ as her Savior when she was just eight years old and considered herself blessed to have grown up in a Christian home. The evidence of Christ in her parents’ lives and the teaching Holly received as a child provided a good foundation and led her to an understanding of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. As an eight-year-old, she knew accepting Jesus as her Savior saved her from Hell and that it was because of a gift of God (grace), but did not fully understand God’s grace on an intimate and personal level until she was a young adult.  The consequences of decisions made without seeking God’s will and direction for her life began to take a toll, but Holly refused to keep wandering in circles.

Yielding to the Holy Spirit, life changed as she experienced the unconditional love of God through His forgiveness and came to understand the New Life given as part of her salvation.

Holly calls herself a “misplaced Southerner” having lived the bulk of her life in Phoenix and San Diego but now calls North Carolina home. She enjoys working with women at her church home, time with friends, listening to music, reading, and hanging out with her husband, David, and their two dogs. David and Holly have two grown sons; Tyler (Caiti) and Jacob.

My Passion

Showing women how to connect the dots between the truth found in God’s Word and living a full adventurous life by stopping the endless circles of doing the same thing day after day, looking for different results.

Why Journey North?

The Journey North is all about changing direction. Maybe you are at a place where you want something different. Be it small, like helping organize your home, or large, like looking to make a career move, it is safe to say nothing will change until you change directions.

Deuteronomy 2:3 tells us a little about changing directions. The Israelites wandered the desert for forty years!  Round and round and round they went circling the mountain when the Promised Land had been close all along. They just needed to change directions!  Albert Einstein said it best “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If this is you, it might be time to take the “Journey North.”


Maybe you have already headed out a different direction, find yourself stuck, needing help fine tuning or staying focused.  That’s why the logo for Journey North is a dragonfly.  The dragonfly is agile, flying at almost 45 miles per hour or it can hover in one spot.  The dragonfly is adaptable, while it does not change color, its iridescence allows it to look like it is changing color.  The dragonfly is graceful skimming across the top of the water with ease but make no mistake; it is also fierce and goes after what it wants.

If you need help changing direction, staying focused, or figuring out what might be holding you back i.e., past trauma, loss, failure, etc., Journey North Coaching Services is the place for you.  We will partner with you to help you identify your goals, build self-confidence, and find the motivation needed to experience success.

I'm here & ready to help you through this Journey North. Here's what my clients are saying..

"Holly is a great coach, she has patiently listened, brought focus and enabled me to set goals. She cheers for me as I meet my goals. She provides the accountability I need and always points me back to God and his word. Her coaching has changed my life. I am so thankful for her."

-Amber H, Pastors Wife 

"Holly is amazing!! She has been coaching me since July of 2019 and I don't know what I would do without her. As an artist, I am creative, but often get caught up in the details of a project and end up overwhelmed. Holly helps me to organize my thoughts and "reframe" any challenges that may arise. Then we come up with appropriate steps I can take towards my goal. She never tells me what to do or forces her own ideas. Instead, she poses questions to get me thinking and eventually arrive at a solution. Because of Holly, I have accomplished more than I ever thought I could. She has a gift! I am so thankful for her!"

-Sarah M, 36, Artist 

"Holly is a great coach and helped me stay on track by providing encouragement, guidance and accountability for me. I’m in a big transition changing careers and Holly helped me to let go of my past jobs and disappointments and put my energies to what I really want to do. I was able to gain much more insight to my temperament with one of the “tools” in her toolbox which is the Arno Profile System. Since she is a subject matter expert in temperaments, this assessment as well as her coaching helped me uncover some areas that don’t work well for me - job related- and helped me to focus on my strengths and best work place type opportunities in this transitional time. Thank you so much Holly for your guidance, expertise and accountability!"
