Hello. I'm Chrissy Holm.
A writer, editor, and book coach helping you bring your stories and words to life.
A few months after returning to my corporate job from maternity leave, I wasn't satisfied with my career trajectory and felt I was missing something I felt deep in my core.
Growing up, I thrived in creativity, enjoyed writing and editing, and I always had a love for books and words. After realizing that my current job wasn't for me, I decided to switch career paths toward my real passion.
By day, I enjoy writing about health for publications like Everyday Health, National Council on Aging, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, and more.
On the side, I manage editing and book coaching clients ranging from health to nonfiction books. Not only am I driven to tell my story, but I'm also passionate about supporting others in telling theirs.
Outside of these endeavors, I love to be in nature, continuously learning, exploring and traveling, and spending time with my husband and two-year-old daughter.
Chrissy was my star beta reader for my memoir, Able to Be Otherwise. Chrissy provided thorough, thoughtful, and pointed feedback that helped me improve my writing in tangible ways. With an attention to detail, she pointed out any inconsistencies in tone, timeline, and biographical details, helping me strengthen the very structure of my book.
Beyond this, Chrissy was encouraging and probing, going above and beyond to ask the questions that I needed to answer in order to bring my story to life in a holistic and impactful way. Though it’s easy to be discouraged by a stream of suggestions for improvement flooding in, I was only ever encouraged and excited to dig deeper into my writing when working with Chrissy. I cannot recommend her enough!
