What’s your story? (Name, Age, Birthdate, Hometown, Current Neighborhood, Education, Current Position, Current goals, etc.)
I’m Hollie! Proud to have been Born and raised in Columbus Ohio. I am your typical girl next door. I am always smiling, love coffee, wine and doing anything I can to make someone else’s day! Thanks to Ohio State, I work in pediatric dentistry and LOVE what I do. I like to think of myself as a tooth nurse. Truly, I love patient care, but now I’m starting to adventure into the dental marketing world. After school, I married A handsome man and we live about 30 minutes east of Columbus. I still commute daily to my hometown and spend as much time as I can in the city with friends and family! Current goal in life: Becoming a mommy. Recently I was diagnosed with DOR (Diminishing Ovarian Reserve). Basically, A fancy word for horrible egg quality. I am now super involved with the infertility world. Something I never imagined I would deal with at 26. I have started to blog my story in hopes to help others experiencing the same situations.
