Holly A. Parker
Senior Director of Programs
As Senior Director of Programs, Holly is helping to support and expand the success of Fair Food Network’s programs. She focuses on strategy, leadership, evaluation, and opportunities for expansion and alignment across existing and/or nascent program areas.
Prior to joining Fair Food Network, Holly worked for more than a decade in community and workforce development. As the VP of Economic Opportunity at Corporation for a Skilled Workforce, Holly focused on policy and program design, implementation, and evaluation. She also brings extensive experience in nonprofit leadership and management.
Holly has a master’s degree in Public Policy from the University of Michigan’s Ford School. She began her career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lithuania and has followed a mission-driven path ever since.
A proud native of Flint, Holly is delighted to be working and living close to home in Ann Arbor, where she enjoys her husband’s cooking (and company!) and tries to keep up with her two young children. In her spare time, she runs as far and as (not very) fast as possible, whenever possible.
