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

It always seems cliché to me to write about things that are expected: seasonal and conventional things. During summertime, there are articles about vacation destinations or fun ways to expand outdoor living spaces. Halloween brings pieces on costume ideas and spooky...

Trusty Dogs

I have trust issues. There. I admitted it. And for as long as I can remember, I’ve known that I could always count on one human: me. It taught me to be highly capable and independent, and ingrained in me the motto, “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”...

Are You Open?

One of my favorite quotes is “You don’t have to believe everything you think.” That has never applied more profoundly than it does today, with what is happening in our country. Confirmation bias is real and everyone is guilty of it from time to time. Being open to new...

Coming from the Southeast coast, and having been raised just outside of the D.C. area, I never appreciated summertime much due to the mugginess and oppressive heat. Summers were mostly spent running from your air conditioned house to your air conditioned vehicle to...
