Meet Your Hosts

Tammy Hollander

Welcome to Galveston Island KOA Holiday!

Tammy Hollander and her husband Marc took an interesting path to their jobs at Galveston Island KOA Holiday. They met in the music industry, then decided snow was no longer their friend and moved from the Midwest to the Florida Keys. Hurricane Irma brought them to Orlando/Kissimmee KOA Holiday where they assisted in clean up, which ultimately led them to fall in love with Kampgrounds of America. Tammy and Marc look forward to meeting new guests and getting involved in the Galveston community, come visit and say hello!
