After earning a B.A. from Rice University, Mrs. Holliman served as a scheduler and product manager at Levi Strauss & Co. She has three boys and enjoys traveling with her husband. She is an active volunteer in her neighborhood and at local schools.

Her juvenile-onset open-angle glaucoma was discovered serendipitously in her junior year of college during an appointment to replace a contact lens.

Since that diagnosis, dedicated specialists in Houston, San Francisco, Washington and Dallas have worked creatively and aggressively to save her vision. Mrs. Holliman has been a patient of Glaucoma Associates of Texas since 1996 under the primary care of Dr. Ronald Fellman.

Mrs. Holliman serves as Secretary for the Cure Glaucoma Foundation. Her hope is to leverage her firsthand experience to raise awareness among those who may be less likely to seek care.
