“I had been out of the hospitality and tourism industry for a few years and was so excited for the opportunity to dive back in and really show all that there is to discover in Albany County," said Holland. “In my time at the New York State Hospitality & Tourism Association (NYSH&TA) I was able to get a glimpse of the amazing people that work in the hospitality and tourism industry and how much New York State embraces all that it has to offer travelers. I'm thrilled to be back in the industry highlighting truly incredible sights and attractions that I am lucky enough to have in my backyard!"
