Holly has been a member of the Septic Preservation Team for almost 18 months. She was brought on initially to help with product descriptions with the online store but is now involved with packaging, pricing and postage, as well as increasing their presence online.
Holly also has taken over writing the daily blogs and updating the online calendars to free up time for Bob Silva, head of SPS, and allow him more time for his daily administrative duties.
She has a degree in Medieval History and has worked for 8 years in Human Resource and recruitment for engineering companies, involving Automotive, Aerospace and Oil and Gas. While Holly does not possess an engineering degree, she feels her past experiences help her in writing the blogs and she feels she can present the technical matters in a way that everyone can understand. She is able to take a colleague’s repair story and research about the fix and the reason for i,t and present it in her daily blogs.
Holly is British and moved to the United States in 2009. She initially lived in Missouri, Colorado, and then Massachusetts. She is now living in California, slightly north of San Diego, with her two elementary aged children. She is able to work remotely and stay involved in SPS. She has enjoyed spending time exploring her new town and state and discovering the best beaches with her children.
Being British sometimes creates problems with the “language barrier”. According to Holly, ” Although we all speak English, I still find I’m sometimes speaking a foreign language. For example, I was corresponding with a supplier of ours about their pumps and also the spares kits that they provide to carryout maintenance and repairs on their pumps. After placing the spares kit onto the website, Bob pointed out to me that in the USA a “spares kit” is not something that would ever be referred to and a “rebuild kit” is the correct term. It turned out that my contact with our supplier was also British, which I hadn’t realized, and we were both using the wrong term and confusing everyone else!
Holly enjoys being a valued member of the SPS team and helping to spread the word on their great reputation.
