Dr. Holt joined Pathology Laboratory Associates, Inc. in March of 2006, after 20 years in private practice mainly in South Florida.

Her training included working under the late Dr. George Wied at the University of Chicago, considered a pioneer in modern cytopathology. The training program at MD Anderson included heavy emphasis on frozen section diagnosis and rapid evaluation of deep and superficial fine needle aspiration. Her practice at Boca Raton Community Hospital (now Baptist Health Boca Raton Regional Hospital) was also mainly an oncologic pathology practice and included rapid on-site evaluation of deep and superficial FNAs in conjuction with Radiology. Since joining PLA, she performs superficial fine needle aspiration biopsies, mainly on head and neck lesions, with rapid on-site evaluation.

In addition to practicing surgical pathology and cytopathology, she served as Medical Director of the Transfusion Service. She also served on the board of directors of a large regional blood center, Community Blood Centers of South Florida, from 1989 to 2005, including three years as Chairman.

Dr. Holt has over 35 years of experience in high volume private practice pathology.
