During the 2018 season she has competed at both the Indoor and outdoor British championships as well as becoming the 400m silver medallist at the senior England athletics championships. She then went on to be selected and compete for the gold medal winning England relay team in the 4x400m at the Manchester international.

Throughout her time as an athlete Holly has achieved results such as English schools 400m gold medallist (2013), and Sussex champion in both the 400m and 200m for a number of years.
Although Holly is now focusing her attention on athletics and training full time she is also currently self-studying towards an accounting qualification with ACCA, in which she is working flexibly part time in order to gain experience alongside her own training.
