Courtney Hollands

Courtney comes to Boston magazine after a four-and-a-half year tenure at and The Boston Globe, where she headed the EPpy-award winning Things to Do section online and contributed regularly to the lifestyle sections of the paper and to The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine. Before that, she worked for and covered government and crime for The Patriot Ledger. She also interned at Rolling Stone (ask her about touring with Good Charlotte in Australia). Courtney prides herself on random knowledge of Boston's neighborhoods and nightlife, and when she isn't writing or editing, she's probably shopping, running, at a concert, or drinking craft beer.
