Holly Vonderheit

Executive Director, Strategic Communications

IU Communications Indianapolis
340 W. Michigan Street

Indianapolis, IN 46202


As a communications strategist, Holly appreciates the art of storytelling—harnessing the written word and compelling visuals to inspire ideas and drive behavior.

During her career of more than 25 years, she’s had the privilege of leading communications or marketing for some of the state’s most beloved and respected brands, including Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University Health, and now Indiana University.

She serves as an adjunct instructor with the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI.

Holly is proud to have three children at various points along the road to IU degrees. She recently achieved a decades-long dream of leading a book club, which has a strong track record of selecting titles that land on the big screen.
