Hello – My name is Holly Reisem Hanna and I am the Founder and Publisher of The Work at Home Woman; an awarding winning website dedicated to helping women and moms fulfill their dreams of working from home and/or becoming self employed.
Here’s how it all got started…
In 2007 my beautiful daughter Hadley was born, and from the minute she was placed in my arms, I knew that I would not be able to return to my full-time job as a RN Clinical Research Coordinator. With the support of my husband Jeff, I was able to quit my full-time job and become a full-time stay a home mom.
But after nine months of play-dates and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my mommy mush brain. I searched high and low to find a legitimate work at home job. I bounced from site to site, sifting through information and scams, only to come up empty-handed. It was at this time when I had my light-bulb moment, “I need to create a one-stop-shop, where women can find all of the information they need to work at home”!
To fund this endeavor, I started working part-time (at home) as a Social Media Manager for American Writers and Artisits, Inc (AWAI). While working for AWAI, I did research and wrote content for The Work at Home Woman, and 15 months later I was able to launch. I have now been blogging for 3+ years and I absolutely love it! It has given me freedom, flexibility and financial stability and has launched the business that I had only dreamt of.
I graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology and a minor in Sociology. A few years later I obtained my Associate Degree in Nursing, as well as securing my license as a Registered Nurse.
I currently live in Austin, Texas, with my amazing husband Jeff, my wonderful daughter Hadley, and our fur baby, Bella. My favorite holiday is Halloween; I am a coffee addict, I love cookies, amusement rides, traveling, reading, cooking, being outdoors and spending time on the lake!
