Holly Leber Simmons is a writer and editor based in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Her areas of coverage include the arts, culture, health and nutrition, cooking, family and gender issues, sex and romantic relationships, sustainable living, religion and personal profiles.
Holly has worked for the Associated Press, the Chattanooga Times Free Press, and the Daily Do Good, a DC-based company dedicated to promoting the work of nonprofit organizations and helping people find fun, easy ways to give back to the community. While at the Times Free Press, she was co-producer of a film criticism feature, Matinee Melee, and author of the popular and sometimes incendiary column, Love and Other Indoor Sports.
Her work has appeared in USA Today, the L.A. Times, the International Herald Tribune, the Times of Israel, Washington Post Express, and on websites Mic.com and Paste, among others.
She holds an M.S.J. from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, and a B.A. in Women's Studies from Skidmore College.
In her spare time, Holly enjoys binging murder mystery shows, making jam and hunting for vintage Nancy Drew books. She deeply regrets the fact that George Carlin never served as president of the United States. She is desperately in need of a rug to tie the whole room together.
