We've brought in an insanely exciting lineup of women that have clarity in their purpose, and a passion for helping other women discover theirs.
They've each walked through the trenches, clung to Jesus through them, and have turned their messes into their messages, and their pain into their purpose.

Whatever stage of life you find yourself in, you're going to see pieces of yourself in their stories.  And we pray that the keys they have found along the way will help you unlock what is holding you back.

Venue owner, marketing director

Kaitlin holland

Kaitlin Holland is the Owner and Marketing Director of McAlister-Leftwich House and Founder of The School of Styling. She lives in Greensboro with her husband, Clay, and their kiddos, Lucy & James. She was saved by Grace and is on a mission to extravagantly love those she meets. 

Kaitlin graduated from Elon University with a degree in Art and quickly discovered her love for entrepreneurship. After starting a successful vintage rental company in 2012 (and later selling it in 2015), Kaitlin saw a need for a training environment that served the creative entrepreneur as a whole. So, she created The School of Styling to provide women a place to build business and creative confidence, which has received notable exposure in both the United States and internationally.

In 2016 she came across McAlister-Leftwich House online. She quickly fell in love with the two historic homes that share the property and she, along with her mother and husband, began to dream up what this beautiful place could be. Two years after discovering Greensboro's greatest hidden gem, the trio cut the (calligraphed hand-dyed silk) ribbon at their Grand Opening Party. Now, the McAlister-Leftwich House hosts boutique wedding and events with their one-of-a-kind experience of refined Southern hospitality.

Kaitlin spends her work days leading the McAlister-Leftwich team, creating content and vision for McAlister-Leftwich, and educating through The School of Styling and her days at home chasing a toddler, cuddling a baby, and working on her next house project.
