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 and Co-Owner, Clay, and her babies Lucy & James.

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.

In 2016 she came across McAlister-Leftwich House online. She quickly fell in love with the property and she, along with Cheryl (her mother) and Clay, began to dream up what this beautiful place could be.

Now she spends her days leading the McAlister-Leftwich team, creating content and vision for McAlister-Leftwich, and educating through The School of Styling.


Cheryl moved to Greensboro, NC from Raleigh, NC in 2017 after she, Kaitlin (her daughter) and Clay purchased the McAlister-Leftwich House. She is a graduate of North Carolina State University.

Cheryl is the Venue & Logistics Manager at the McAlister-Leftwich House. She keeps the houses and property looking immaculate and works closely with our clients and their vendors to help their events run smoothly.

She loves spending her days at McAlister-Leftwich House, visiting her kids in Raleigh and Charlotte, and playing with her grand babies Lucy and James!
