Prior to her tenure at NTIA, she advised the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on the creation and implementation of a nationwide public-safety broadband network, now known as FirstNet, and implemented an executive order to accelerate broadband deployment on federal lands.

Holtz earned her bachelor’s degree from the George Washington University and received her law degree from Syracuse University. She also holds master’s degrees from the London School of Economics and the Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism at the University of Southern California.
