Sen. Adam Hollier was born and raised in the North End of Detroit where generations of his family have lived since the 1940s.
As the son of a former social worker and a former Detroit Fire Department captain, service to people and the community were ingrained in Hollier from a young age.
He served as a volunteer firefighter before enlisting in the U.S. Army and graduating with distinction from officer candidate school, where he earned the commission of 2nd Lieutenant. He currently serves in the 412th Civil Affairs BN(A) as the Public Works Officer USAR.
Prior to joining the Senate, Hollier served as director of government affairs for the Michigan Fitness Foundation. His work experience also included roles as a staffer in the state legislature and with local officials in the city of Detroit, where his efforts were instrumental in developing policies that protected seniors and facilitated the installation of 64,000 new lights to make neighborhoods safe.
He was named to Michigan Chronicle’s 40 under 40 in 2013 and Crain’s 20 in their 20’s in 2015.
Sen. Hollier is a proud graduate of Detroit Public Schools. He earned a bachelor’s in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University and master’s in urban planning from the University of Michigan. He lives in Detroit’s North End with his wife, Krystle, and young daughter.
