President, TechMoxie, LLC

After more than 20 years of practicing law, Ms. Holland founded TechMoxie out of a love of technology and the passion for simplifying the complex. She oversees curriculum development and manages a team of coaches who share her love of helping older adults rock their technology. Upon earning her Juris Doctor from the Catholic University's Columbus School of Law, she practiced commercial real estate law with Melrod, Redman & Gartlan for three years and then became the Associate General Counsel for Fannie Mae where she worked for 21 years. Leaving Fannie Mae in 2012, she took a consulting position with Bank of America but had always harbored the dream of becoming an entrepreneur.  For some time, she had been thinking about a business that would teach technology to “late adopters,” both the tech adverse and older generations. A lover of gadgets, Ms. Holland was always playing with the latest technology, testing out apps and troubleshooting devices. She decided to offer a class called “Getting to Know your iPad” at a local community center, and as she recounts, “Bingo! That was it. The class was full with a waiting list. I went to other community centers and started picking up one-on-one clients. It’s mostly coaching, filling in the gaps, and getting the client comfortable with the technology.” TechMoxie was born in 2013 and has since expanded to a network of coaches who are bringing the joy and connectedness of technology to those looking to build job skills and intellectually curious retirees.

Attorney General of the District of Columbia

Mr. Racine is the first elected Attorney General of the District of Columbia. With his inauguration in 2014, the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) began an era of independence for the agency and accountability to District residents. As the chief legal officer for the District, Attorney General Racine relies on his 25 years of legal and leadership experience to advise the Mayor and District agencies, defend the city in court, and use the law to advance the public interest. He has prioritized data-driven juvenile justice reform, consumer protection efforts aimed at assisting the District’s most vulnerable residents, measures to advance democracy and safeguard public integrity, and legal actions to protect affordable housing in communities across the District. Attorney General Racine has broad and deep legal experience, with a career that spans representing indigent residents in the D.C. Public Defender Service and volunteering as a law student in a clinic supporting migrant farm workers’ rights to serving as Associate White House Counsel in the first Clinton Administration and practicing white-collar and commercial litigation with leading law firms. He was the first African-American managing partner of a top-100 US law firm, Venable LLP, where he led a team of over 600 attorneys, and has also served on the District’s Judicial Nomination Commission. A lifelong District resident, Attorney General Racine attended Murch Elementary School, Deal Junior High School, Wilson High School, and graduated from St. Johns College High School.
