Nancy Holland, PA-C
Nancy was born in Kinston, NC where she lived until she moved to Greenville at the age of 19. As a child she spent her weekends and summers on the shores of Bogue Sound. There, she learned how to “live off the land” from her mother, a nurse and her father, a pilot. They enjoyed net fishing, gigging, clamming, crabbing and celebrating their catch with friends. Her father often flew them to the shore from the Kinston airport where he owned ISO aero service, to a nearby field he had converted into an airstrip. When she was older, Nancy was inspired to get her private pilot’s license and enjoyed flying short trips and sightseeing with friends and family. In 1985, she met a man who swept her off her feet by taking her into the ocean on his boat and teaching her to troll for King Mackerel and Dolphin. Since their marriage in 1988, she and her husband, Ed have enjoyed a vacation home in Emerald Isle which is now their primary residence. When their son was 12 years old, he inspired her to go back to school to study medicine. With steadfast support from her husband, she earned a BS in Nutrition and a BS in Physician Assistant Studies from ECU. She also has a Masters in Health Science from Duke University. After graduation, she began her career at Our Children’s Clinic in Winterville where she worked for 15 years. Nancy’s son Trey and his wife Jenn live near Raleigh. Trey is a software engineer at NetApp, and Jenn owns and runs Holl&Main Boutique in Morrisville. In her spare time, Nancy enjoys knitting, kayaking, cooking, fishing and woodworking. Her mission is to help patients learn to live a healthy lifestyle in hopes of decreasing the risk for developing disease later in life.
