    Holly Thaggard is the #SPFQueen making sunscreen an everyday part of everyone’s skincare routine. In our final episode of Season Two, Holly takes us on her unlikely journey from teacher, to harpist, to Founder & CEO of Supergoop! You may know Supergoop! as that all-natural sunscreen brand from Instagram and Sephora, but what you may not know is the hustle that included playing the harp to fund the business in the early days.
