Hollis Kline earned her BA in literature from Yale University (Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude) and her MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). A lifelong love of reading and writing led Hollis to pursue student journalism by taking on various editorial roles at The Yale Herald, writing for The Stanford Business Reporter and co-founding a Stanford GSB blog. Before joining mbaMission, Hollis held a variety of roles in New York and San Francisco, working in design-focused public relations at Clifford Public Relations, real estate private equity at Carmel Partners and executive search at Russell Reynolds Associates—where she selected and interviewed senior executive candidates for C-suite and board positions at large corporations. In her free time, Hollis enjoys rock climbing throughout the western United States and Canada and is a council member of the Yosemite Conservancy, which is dedicated exclusively to the preservation and enhancement of Yosemite National Park. When she is not scaling one of the park’s peaks, domes or walls, Hollis can often be found engaging in one of her other interests—photography, yoga, travel and vegan cooking.
