Alicia Hollins—Senior Sales Coordinator

With ads in all 17 Omaha Publications, Senior Sales Coordinator Hollins excels in organization while also assisting Executive VP of Sales Gil Cohen in all things Omaha Publications. “I would be lost without her,” Cohen confessed. After working together for 14 years, Team Gil and Alicia take pride in helping their clients maximize their marketing efforts. As an Omaha native, she loves going to events and running into friends and acquaintances by happenstance. As a wife, she spends a lot of time cooking and designing her home with husband Trevor, who leads the Lighting Group at Leo A Daly. As a mom, she enjoys any time she gets to spend with her 12-year-old, Logan—even the carousel of pick-ups and drop-offs. When Hollins has time to herself, you can find her researching her ancestry, chatting on the phone, or painting a room of her house while enjoying a comedy podcast. 

Chase Murphy—Freelance Writer

Chase Murphy is a freelance writer and law student set to graduate from Creighton School of Law this May. Holding a degree in creative writing from UNO, he’s thoroughly excited by the opportunity to put his pen to topics beyond the rigid confines of legal writing. Murphy and his wife lived in Shanghai, China, for a few years after university where he occasionally published pieces in Shanghai’s International Magazine. Afterwards, they lived in Seattle for roughly a year before moving back to Omaha for law school. Murphy has a new son, 9 months, and spends what little free time he has with his family and enjoying hobbies.

Sophia Ridge—Freelance Writer

Sophia Ridge was born and raised right here in Omaha, Nebraska. After receiving her undergraduate degree in Classics and Religious Studies and graduate degree in English Education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, she made her way back to Omaha to teach English at the secondary level. When she has free time from grading papers and planning lessons, which is rare, Ridge enjoys exploring new restaurants, bars, shops, and events that pop up around the metro. She also loves reading, watching films and binge-worthy television shows, traveling, bowling with her partner, and cuddling her Himalayan cat, Auggie.
