Other than when she attended college, Ginny Holland, newest member to the CFVH Governing Board, has resided in the Hot Springs/Camas Prairie area for most of her life. She earned her Associate’s Degree in Accounting from the University of Montana – COT and her Bachelor’s Degree in Business – Accounting from Montana State University – Billings.
Ginny has worked as the Business Manager and Clerk of the Board the last 17 years for the Plains School District. Before that, she held the same position in Hot Springs for 11 years. When asked why she recently joined the CFVH Governing Board, Ginny answered, "Now that my children are grown and living their own lives, I feel it is time to take my turn and volunteer in the community. I truly believe in the importance of having quality, affordable healthcare available in our communities and I am excited to have an opportunity to learn and contribute to such a valuable organization." She also added, "I hope my education and work experience in accounting and grant funding will be helpful to my position on the board. I have been a school business manager and clerk of the board for the past 28 years; therefore, I feel I have a good understanding of the role of a board member."
Ginny and her husband, Jim Holland, Plains Schools Elementary Principal reside on the Holland Family Ranch in beautiful Camas Prairie. They have three sons: Nate, Ben and Jimmy. Relatively new to the "empty nest" life, Ginny shared, "I am working on discovering my own interests and hobbies after chasing kids and following them to all their various sporting events for the past 25 years. I currently enjoy all kinds of exercise and have even ran a few half marathons. I enjoy kayaking on our beautiful rivers and lakes around Western Montana, reading, travelling, spending time with family and attending Griz football games."
Ginny additionally volunteers for the Camas Prairie Neighbors and was previously involved with both the Hot Springs and Plains Schools along with their community youth baseball programs.
