“I met Holly years ago when she came to visit L.A.,” Grooby creative and editorial director Kristel Penn said. “We hit it off online beforehand and would chat on occasion, so it felt like meeting an old friend when we finally met in person. Sparky [Snakeden] and I took her out and I remember just how much fun the three of us had together that night. She always brought that same vibrant energy to every TEAs she attended. She and Brooke would bounce around the party like little pixies—it always made me smile. She will certainly be missed.”
