Alex Holleman’s background as a tenacious lawyer coupled with her innate sense of style has made her a sought-after community volunteer, especially for the Mint Museum Auxiliary. Planning events that raise money for the museum is dear to her because visual art is one of her passions and her home is filled with works she’s collected. She and her friend Jenn Lamarre were recently chosen as the new editors of The Scout Guide Charlotte because of their business acumen and style. They were also picked by the auxiliary to co-chair its annual Symposium fundraiser in spring 2015. They immediately went to work and landed a major speaker: Aerin Lauder of the Lauder cosmetics empire, who has recently launched her own Aerin lifestyle brand. Along with expressing herself creatively through her magical sense of style that’s a mix of new and vintage, Holleman also makes unique necklaces that are popular with some of Charlotte’s most fashionable women.
