Meet Hollie

Mother, grandmother, businesswoman, nurse, author, former US Army reservist; Hollie Noveletsky embodies what it means to be a servant leader. She runs her family business, which she took over upon her father’s sudden death in 1999. She also is a registered nurse who still practiced through the pandemic, helping elderly patients specializing in gero-psychiatric care.

Hollie is scrappy, adventurous and decisive, she doesn’t wait for the perfect plan to formulate, she jumps in with two feet to a challenge, figures out where she lands, and starts swimming from there.

And she’s put her money where her mouth is all her life. She’s spent time overseas volunteering in Sierra Leone working with victims of the Blood Diamond Wars, working in the amputee camps and with victims of the sex trade, she’s traveled to the aid of victims after Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Katrina (three times!), the Maine ice storms, the Oklahoma tornadoes, and volunteer providing psychiatric care on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

In addition to her volunteer work, she’s ridden solo across the country on her motorcycle with no GPS, just a map in her hands, multiple times. Her company, Novel Iron Works has funded requests from the Working Dog Foundation. Under Hollie’s leadership Novel has been responsible for placing dogs in various departments around the state, including the first bomb dog given to the state after 9/11. 

And she also has a line of books called “Pip’s Giving Series,” named so because a portion of the proceeds of each book is donated to a charity matching the theme of the book including the American Heart Association, Welding Scholarships for high school technical programs, Running Strong for Native American Youth, and New York Second Chance Animal Rescue. The series follows the life, in cartoon form, of her grandson “JR”, lovingly known as “Pip.”

In the realm of public service, Hollie served 8 years in the US Army Reserve as a captain within the 373rd General Hospital Unit out of Boston as a nurse and then joined the New Hampshire National Guard working as a nurse practitioner at headquarters. She had the opportunity to travel to Germany as an Augmentee with the DC National Guard to participate in the Reforger military war games.

When Hollie sets her mind to something, watch out, because it’s getting done.

In her professional life, Hollie is Principal of Novel Iron Works Inc and Rose Steel Inc, both located in Greenland, NH. Novel Iron Works is a third generation, family owned, WBE certified structural steel fabrication company. Rose Steel is a family owned, WBE certified structural steel erector. She is a past Chair and current Board of Directors member of Steel Fabricators of New England. She is a current Board of Directors member of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), and a past Chair and current member of the AISC Government Relations Committee.

Hollie is also a Gerontological and a Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who specializes in gero-psychiatric care. She received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Rush University, a Master of Science in Gerontological Nursing from Boston University, a Post Masters Certificate in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing from MGH Institute of Health Professions, and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Nursing Research from Boston College. She has held numerous clinical positions. Hollie held an Assistant Professorship in Nursing at MGH Institute of Health Professions and was an Adjunct faculty member at New Hampshire Technical College, department of Nursing.

Hollie has a long track record of providing solutions to problems in and around her community. When she saw a need to provide more career opportunities for military members separating from service, she started a DOD Skillbridge program in welding to provide training to military members so they would have the technical training to jumpstart their careers upon separation. She’s also organized a statewide welding competition for New Hampshire high school students that has provided scholarships to the New Hampshire Community Colleges’ welding programs.

Hollie does not take lightly her call to serve in Congress. Hollie has a proven record of standing up for our nation, our state, our community, and our children. She draws inspiration from her father, a first generation American who joined the Army at 16 years old and volunteered for Merrill’s marauders in the jungles of Burma, India, and China behind enemy lines. Her own experience in the military, as a nurse, as a small business owner, and a mother and grandmother will help her tackle the challenges New Hampshirites are facing and bring real solutions to New Hampshire families.
