Holly Hoeksema
Biography: With over 25 years of experience as an educator in a variety of venues, Holly Hoeksema brings a wealth of knowledge, passion, and expertise to every class she teaches. As a credentialed classroom teacher, she understands the science behind each person's learning process and includes a spectrum of different learning opportunities into every workshop.

Holly has spent the bulk of her professional career in Leadership Development and Team Management, specializing in helping teams and individuals increase their effectiveness, productivity, and joy in their work life. She has worked with every kind of client--from one-on-one coaching with leaders of all types to facilitating team building activities for hundreds of people. Former clients include Google, the US Army, Facebook, and hundreds of others. In addition to teaching, Holly changes the world through her consulting business, which offers individual and team effectiveness activities and life-coaching.

Holly's other passion is the intersection of good food and healthy living! A lifelong 'foodie' and self-taught chef, she went vegetarian 10 years ago and has been vegan for the last five, and loves to cook meals that lead others to say, "I can't believe how great this is!" Holly has a love for international travel and considers herself an 'adventurous eater', and enjoys trying new foods as often as possible. She has taught dozens of cooking classes in different states and is energized by introducing others to the joys of healthy, incredibly flavorful recipes. She believes that cooking should be full of fun and flavor, and she is thrilled to be teaching culinary classes for COCC Continuing Education.
