Hollie grew up in Ironwood Michigan but at 21 years moved to Green Bay. She is not a Packers fan (however, we can try “converting”) but a Detroit Lions fan!
I asked Hollie how she was liking the “cheese” business. She said what surprised her most was the “in depth process” cheese has.
It was great getting to know Hollie and she is a welcomed asset to Winona Foods, INC.
