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 21 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 publisher Doug got engaged this past December and enjoy working, living and playing together. Reach Holly at holly@coloradoserenity.com

Working on My Latest Superpower

Like Water Off a Duck’s Back

I’d like to start off this month by expressing my appreciation for all the love I received on last month’s column. I have been way busier than I like to be since the May issue delivered and I haven’t had a chance to personally respond to the messages I received, but I...

The Young Clerk and the Old Lady

A good friend posted this to her Facebook page and it was just too good not to print this month. I can’t give an attribution as it has been passed around for years and there is no way to know who originally wrote it, as with many things on the internet: Checking out...

Live And Let Live

I am compelled this month to print something that has been circulating on social media recently and that really resonated with me (and apparently quite a few others, since I shared it on my Facebook page and there was a lot of agreement). Common Sense Versus...
