Holly Hightchew

Holly Hightchew knows all about living an imperfect life. In fact, she believes women often strive in vain to reach the unattainable idea of perfection and then feel guilty when they don’t. She would be the first to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom, or for that matter, a perfect child. She has learned to enjoy her own perfectly imperfect life which consists of being “the preacher’s wife” for more than 20 years, homeschooling her three children and helping families navigate the world of dyslexia.
It was only after her youngest daughter was diagnosed with profound dyslexia that Holly geared her passion and training to helping children with dyslexia successfully learn to read. She now works with dyslexic students and their parents providing reading assessments and training at The Learning Curve in Union, Ky. She helps train parents, teachers and tutors to work with children using the Orton-Gillingham method. Holly worked this past summer as the Academic Director of Dyslexia Camp at Potter’s Ranch. Additionally, she is a Certified Barton Tutor.
Holly holds a BA in Communication and Business Administration from Northern Kentucky University. She worked as the Human Resources and Public Relations Manager for Gallatin Steel in Ghent, Kentucky. She has served on the Board of Trustees for the Gallatin County Public Library in Warsaw, Kentucky, and has volunteered many summers working as a camp counselor at Happy Hills Christian Service Camp in Carrollton, Kentucky. She and her husband, Bob, have been happily married for 28 years, and along with their three children, live in Warsaw, Kentucky. Her husband serves as the senior minister of the South Fork Christian Church in Verona, KY.
