Holly Sizemore, Director-Community Programs & Services for Best Friends, entered the animal welfare world in 1991 when she discovered a colony of community cats eating from a restaurant dumpster. The experience inspired her to help found the first trap/neuter/return organization in Utah. In 2000, Holly joined No More Homeless Pets in Utah and served the organization in a variety of roles, ending with executive director from 2007 to 2010.
In 2010, Holly joined Best Friends Animal Society and currently oversees Best Friend’s Animal Care and National Programs Divisions.
Holly has volunteered and worked in many different animal welfare arenas, ranging from small grassroots groups to large-scale public-private partnership efforts. Holly holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Utah and a master of public administration degree from the University of Washington. She and her husband proudly share their home with a few former community cats and one adopted dog.
