Colleen Holland

Publisher + Co-Founder

Passionate about publishing and business, Publisher Colleen Holland is the co-founder of VegNews. From the company's humble beginnings in 2000, she grew the publication from a 28-page newspaper tabloid into an award-winning, full-color glossy magazine. A graduate of UCLA and the Natural Gourmet Institute, her background in food, marketing, and brand-building has helped to create a savvy, internationally renowned media company. Colleen has traveled around the world and enjoys yoga, cooking, urban hikes, and dining out at veg restaurants.

If you could eat just one veg meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? An oversized, steaming bowl of laksa soup, a Malaysian specialty with tofu, rice noodles, greens, and cilantro in a fragrant coconut broth.

What veg dish would you cook to dazzle a veg-curious but still carnivorous friend? Thai yellow curry with potatoes, tofu, carrots, and broccoli over Jasmine rice.
