About Us

Holly Vietzke, Esq. graduated from Boston University and Massachusetts School of Law, magna cum laude. She was a full-time professor at the Massachusetts School of Law for 17 years and served on the North Andover School Committee for six years. Holly also spent five years serving on the board of her town's SEPAC (an advisory council of parents of children with special needs) and has a deep understanding of the challenges both parents and schools face in special education. As the parent of a child with disabilities, Holly is passionate about ensuring that every child receives a meaningful education.

When not watching or coaching her children play sports, Holly enjoys spending some of her time giving back to the community. One of Holly's favorite volunteer roles is facilitating programs of Understanding Our Differences in the North Andover elementary schools, which teaches children about what it is like to have different abilities and challenges. Holly was also a volunteer softball commissioner for eight years and has been coaching youth softball for more than 10 years. She is passionate about fostering and improving athletic opportunities for girls.
