In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Marc and Tammy Hollander.

Marc and Tammy are the husband-and-wife crew that run the beautiful Galveston Island KOA in Galveston, Texas.  Tammy is the General Manager, and Marc is the Director of Guest Services.

Sandy and I have stayed at the campground on two different occasions now and have already made plans to go back in 2024.

This past January, I did a book signing at the campground, which allowed me to get to know Marc a little bit.  I loved their story and I loved their passion to make everyone’s stay at the Galveston Island KOA truly an experience that they’ll never forget.

Marc and Tammy’s story is inspirational.  Their initial charity work is what connected them to the KOA brand many years ago.  Their desire to want to help and give back landed them in a KOA in Central Florida helping to clean-up from hurricane damage, which eventually led them to being hired by KOA and now running a beautiful location in Galveston.
