Co-Founder of VegNews, foodie, die-hard yogi, vegan for 20 years!
Passionate about publishing and marketing, Colleen Holland is the co-founder of VegNews. From the company’s humble beginnings in 2000, she grew the vegan lifestyle brand into an award-winning, international media company complete with a flagship magazine, digital properties, events, e-cookbooks, and global vacations. A graduate of UCLA and the Natural Gourmet Institute culinary school, Colleen is one of just six people worldwide to have been elected into both the Vegetarian Hall of Fame and the Animal Rights Hall of Fame—honors which she says are her greatest achievements. A 20-year ethical vegan, she is a die-hard foodie and yogi, and looks forward to returning as a judge in the 2015 Vegan Iron Chef!
