A Conversation with Holly Brooks

Holly Brooks is one of Alaska’s favorite athletes because she was a regular person, an adult with a job, who became a member of the Olympic team, twice. We spend the entire next hour of Outdoor Explorer talking with Holly, learning about her recent retirement, and a new phase in her life as a counselor and coach. She’s had  an amazing journey from coach to Olympian and back to coach, with many lessons learned along the way.
