Susan Holt

The military brought her to the South; first to Virginia then to North Carolina.  An opportunity to live and work in Myrtle Beach was too much to pass up, so Dr. Holt left the full-time military and became a reservist.  She is currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force Reserves.  Dr. Holt enjoys spending time on the water, taking exercise classes, reading, and walking her dog, Lola. She is both a Dance Mom and Soccer Mom to her two children Lane and Logan.
