After an early childhood on various US Navy postings, Holly lived on the Crystal River until graduating CRHS in 1985. She returned to live in Pine Ridge in 2007 to help her mother through the last years of dementia, and then came home again for good at the first of 2018, this time to Citrus Hills. Having lived in quite a few places across the United States, when she says, “Citrus County is the best place to call home!” she really means it.
A primary goal of Holly’s is to promote a wider variety of higher-paying careers in Citrus County, in both offices and the trades. As an avid scuba diver and outdoors enthusiast, continuing to restore and protect our beautiful nature coast is also of paramount importance. These two goals – economic growth and protecting our natural resources – do not have to be at cross-purposes, says Holly. The answer is managing that growth strategically, and specifically in a way that promotes our natural beauty and small- town charm, in part through actively promoting and supporting locally owned small businesses.
Holly’s local family includes dad and “bonus mom” Tom and Gudi Davis of Crystal River Airport.
