Holly grew up spoiled and neurotic, and she pretty much stayed that way. She was daddy's little girl, but she loved the excitement and adventure that first love, sexy Roger Thorpe, was able to show her. Later, she was intrigued when she the same qualities in Roger's son, Sebastian, when he came to town.

Holly is a recovering alcoholic. She also spent some time in a psychiatric ward after it was revealed that she was the Nursery Rhyme Stalker by her own daughter.  She had kidnapped many Springfield children (Susan Lemay, Rocky, Marina and Henry “Coop” Cooper, Lizzie Spaulding, Marah & Shayne Lewis, Kevin & Jason Marler, Tammy Layne and RJ Jessup).

Holly has been more stable in the past decade, working at the Springfield Journal and spending time with her daughter, Blake, and her children.  She frequently left town to visit relatives. In 2009, Ed Bauer came back to town, and he and Holly left on an extended trip together.
