Holly Hill Announces New Executive Director

Holly Hill Child & Family Solutions is thrilled to announce that Connie Freking will be their new Executive Director.  Connie is currently the Director of Payor Relations at Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky.  Prior to her four years at CHNK, she spent 18 years at Brighton Center as the Youth Services Department Director.  Freking has her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education from Eastern Kentucky University, and her Master’s Degree in Community and Agency Counseling from Xavier University.  She’s bringing more than 29 years’ worth of non-profit experience to Holly Hill.

Holly Hill Child & Family Solutions is a nonprofit behavioral health organization that has been creating brighter futures for the children of Northern Kentucky for over 134 years.  Holly Hill started out as a traditional orphanage in 1884 and has transitioned over the years to meet the needs of its community with their residential and community-based programming.  Holly Hill is dedicated to building resilient kids and families for a stronger Kentucky.

As Executive Director, Freking will be responsible for the delivery of high quality professional services, the fiscal integrity of the agency, and the development of an engaged staff.  She will also keep a pulse on trends in community services and healthcare in order to recommend strategic growth opportunities for the agency, including partnerships with other entities.  Freking will have the vision to recommend new strategies that are consistent with Holly Hill’s mission, to strengthen the lives and children through its programs and services, focused on the child.

“It’s an unbelievable opportunity to be able to provide the leadership to positively impact the lives of our community’s children and families.  To work with such a vibrant board and a highly-talented group of leaders and to have a greater impact on those we serve is such an honor.” Freking said.

“We’re in an ever-changing environment in our world, in our community, and specifically in non-profit. I’m excited about being in such a high profile leadership role and will continue to build on what Holly Hill has accomplished.” 

Stephen Mann, Chair of Holly Hill’s Board of Directors adds, “We are extremely fortunate to have found someone who is very knowledgeable in the programs we offer.  Connie’s passion for non-profit services for families and children make her a dynamic addition to Holly Hill.  We believe Connie will be able to have an immediate impact in helping us move Holly Hill forward.”

Freking grew up in Boone County and is currently a resident of Blue Ash, OH, but has been working in Northern Kentucky for most of her professional career. She enjoys having new experiences and meeting new people.  In her spare time she enjoys traveling, kayaking, reading, and cooking Sunday dinner for her friends and family.  She practices meditation and mindfulness, and loves working with the youth group at her church.

Connie’s first official day at Holly Hill will be Wednesday, June 27th.
