Holly Jorgensen
Editor In Chief


Holly grew up in Fairfax, VA, and after also living in the coastal areas of Myrtle Beach, SC and Savannah, GA, she realized the mountains were calling. She moved to Colorado 23 years ago and although she misses the beach at times, vacations help to satisfy that. Holly has owned multiple businesses in the last 36 years, mostly in the pet industry, but nothing has been as fulfilling as overseeing things at Colorado Serenity. Holly and husband/publisher Doug enjoy working, living and playing together. Reach Holly at holly@coloradoserenity.com
