Holly Whitaker is the founder and CEO of Tempest, a company she founded in 2012 when she resolved to deal with her drinking, but found that the recovery program she needed did not yet exist. With years of experience in the field of healthcare and as a former director at a well-known health tech startup, Holly decided to create an accessible, lower cost, digital program for anyone struggling with alcohol, including the 90% of people who misuse alcohol but are not considered to have a severe dependency by diagnosis or self-definition. Today, Tempest has served thousands of individuals on their path to recovery through various programs, educational courses, and online publications. Holly is the bestselling author of Quit Like a Woman, a groundbreaking look at drinking culture and a road map to cutting out alcohol in order to live one's best life without the crutch of intoxication. She has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue and was named in Inc’s 2019 Female Founders 100 List.
