Our People – Holly Jarvis - Supporter Care Officer, Act for Peace

Holly Jarvis - Supporter Care Officer, Act for Peace

Holly has worked as the Supporter Care Officer for Act for Peace since May 2015. She was attracted to this role as an opportunity to combine her customer service experience and Development Studies degree to inspire our valued supporters to give more, do more and stay longer in the fight against injustice.

This year Holly participated in the Ration Challenge, eating the same rations as a Syrian refugee for a week and raising money to support Act for Peace’s refugee programs. She values the opportunity to stand with refugees and join our supporters in this shared experience.

Holly was raised in the Catholic faith, she attended Monte Sant’ Angelo College and credits the Mercy values, particularly compassion, learnt in these formative years for influencing her chosen career path, ‘I was a serial volunteer! I met so many inspirational people through the volunteer opportunities I was given at school.’

When away from her desk Holly is a keen walker. She is currently training for the Oxfam Trailwalker with friend and Act for Peace colleague Jess Xavier. In August they will tackle 100km of Australian bush within 48 hours to make a difference by raising funds to help overcome poverty and injustice around the world. She also enjoys spending time in the garden with her 3 feathered housemates, chickens Charlotte, Luna and Jelly.

Holly’s greatest inspiration is her mum, ‘she is the most compassionate and hard working person I know, I am very fortunate to have grown up with her example’.
