Pre ?What If!, Holly was deep in the world of psychology. She completed her masters at King’s College in Forensic Clinical Psychology that led to working in a high secure prison as an Assistant Psychologist alongside global research experiences. She has written and co-written research on a variety of topics; the impact artificial intelligence is having on human existence, the ability to train prison officers to be more psychologically-minded, and had her research on how using social media influences your psychological well-being, specifically in reference to FoMO, published in a global publication.

In her spare time, you’ll find Holly with her camera roaming the undiscovered streets of a new city or hammering away creating a new piece of jewellery on her avid attempt to have some sort of enviable side-hustle.
