Holly Shepherd, Student Services Specialist

Our new Student Services Specialist Holly Shepherd joined the department of Biochemistry and Biophysics on May 26, 2020.

Holly received a bachelors degree from Appalachian State University in Psychology and a masters degree from University of Virginia in Counselor Education. Over the past six years, she has been a school counselor working with students at all grade levels. After completing a doctorate program in Higher Education Administration at UNC Greensboro, she transitioned the focus of her career to student services at the postsecondary level. She is excited to meet students and begin this new role at UNC Chapel Hill.

Holly will be working in administrative suite area on the third floor of Genetic Medicine building once our offices open up. In the meantime, please contact her via email as she works from her home office to assist graduate students in our programs at Biochemistry and Biophysics. Please reach out and welcome Holly Shepherd to our department.
