Hollie Grimaldi Flores was born in Binghamton, New York and raised in a nearby suburb, Vestal. She is the youngest of seven children. In 1985 Hollie moved to California with a degree in radio and television production out of Syracuse, NY. She worked for an award winning video production company, David Watts Productions, in San Francisco and for the writer of a top weekly radio show, Countdown USA in Marin County as well as for KRCB-TV, a public access television station in Rohnert Park, CA before moving to Grass Valley in 1995. After relocating to Nevada County, Hollie worked in a mechanical engineering firm and eventually started her own bookkeeping business before deciding to pursue a return to her first love  broadcasting. Hollie is past president of Soroptimist International of Grass Valley and the Board of Directors of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition. Hollie has two children from a previous marriage. Trevor Daniel Wade born in 1990 and Courtney Taylor Wade born in 1994. She is married to Ernie Flores and is sharing the responsibility of raising five boys: Michael, Stephen, Nicholas, Christopher and Timothy aged 26 to 17 as well. When not at the station, Hollie enjoys spending time watching local sports, hiking at the river, reading and attending local events with friends.

Another Graduate!

The last few weeks have been full of change.  The high school gradations of course and last weekend, my husband and I traveled to Santa Barbara to watch my son Trevor Wade graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was one of only twelve humanities students to earn a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree.  His is in Theater with an emphasis in acting.  He was easy to spot in the sea of one thousand caps and gowns as he and his fellow “BFA” graduates walked out wearing clown noses.  Such a moment.

He came home with us and has spent the week reacquainting himself with friends and, so far,  the South Yuba River! He plans to move to New York in the fall to begin life as an actor.

I am happy to have him home (for awhile).  Each of the children is finding their way to the next level-  be it finding a job, enrolling in college or moving across country  I know there is an empty nest up ahead somewhere,  one graduate at a time.
