Holly Landau

Holly Landau is a former U.S. Army officer, serving mostly at the Pentagon. She has taught workshops for TEDxPrincetonLibrary, American Express, and Quadrant Engineering. Having endured a life-threatening illness, Landau now speaks on the topic of resilience.

She earned a commission in the U.S. Army through the ROTC program during college and was then asked to join the Army team at the Pentagon during Desert Storm. She served there for several years.

In 2012, she received news that she had a very rare and very large cardiac tumor, and that she might need a heart transplant. Ultimately, one of the top heart surgeons in the United States managed to successfully remove the cardiac tumor and rebuild her heart. 

Now actively speaking and leading workshops on the topic of leadership, she has expanded her offerings to include the principles of positive psychology that supported her through her medical challenges.
