"Wow, your smile really jumped off the screen!" That rather harmless, although slightly corny, pickup line set in motion a chain of events that is truly remarkable. After a chance encounter on Match.com and chatting on the now defunct Yahoo! Messenger for a couple of weeks, Luciana Lima agreed to meet Lee Holliday for a date - it was exactly 10 years ago on March 1st 2009. They met for brunch in Hoboken, New Jersey and have been inseparable ever since.
Luciana had come to the United States from Brazil on a cultural exchange program. She had recently obtained her communications degree from Estácio, an esteemed university in heart of Rio de Janeiro. Lee had obtained his undergraduate degree from Boston University and law degree from the University of Southern California. He had been working at CAA (Creative Artist Agency), the #1 talent and sports agency, before setting off on his journey as an entrepreneur.
The two married in November 2010 and four years later were blessed with a beautiful little curly-haired, bushy eyebrowed girl named Mila Lua. Luciana and Lee have since divided their time between building a business, Holliday Partners Inc. (a premier boutique Executive Search Firm), traveling the world and raising little Mila Lua to be the most confident, compassionate, gregarious and happy girl she could be.
Over the last two years Mila has had the privilege of attending Primrose and has developed in so many amazing ways. She has grown close with her classmates and has enjoyed and appreciated the guidance and support of her teachers and the staff. Mila has recently been accepted into the prestigious Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg, Florida and will be attending in the fall.
