Holly Shreve Gilbert, a professional journalist, has been teaching writing and media design at Oakland University since 1994. She also serves as the professional adviser to The Oakland Post, the independent campus newspaper, and is the chief curriculum adviser for the journalism program.

She is captivated by digital technology and the endless possibilities it offers for journalistic storytelling and other forms of communication. She uses that technology in her classrooms as well as in her work for the Funeral Consumers Alliance, where she serves as secretary to the board of trustees and for the Funeral Consumers Information Society, where she serves as interim president.  She's really not a gloomy person, just interested in getting people to talk candidly about something we're all going to do.

Holly, who earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communication from Western Illinois University, also has a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from Oakland University.

She lives in Rochester Hills with her husband, Garry Gilbert, her 21-year-old son, Jackson, their clown prince standard poodle, Hugo, and two mutt cats, Pandora and Governor.
