Susan Holloway grew up in San Francisco and spent many weekends as a child hiking in Marin with her family and many summers backpacking in the Sierras. Her parents were lifelong environmental activists, working on wilderness preservation issues in Northern California as well as supporting affordable housing and environmentally sound urban development in San Francisco. Susan earned a BA from UC Santa Cruz and a PhD from Stanford in 1983, and then took a teaching position in the College of Education at the University of Maryland. After 13 years in Washington DC and Massachusetts, she happily returned to the Bay Area, and began teaching and conducting research in the Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley. She retired from UCB in 2019, became a member of MC 46 that fall, and joined the EFM board in May of 2020. She brings lifelong experience and commitment as a writer, teacher, and researcher as author of the EFM Notebook.
