Growing up camping and hiking, Olivia has always had an affinity for nature. She graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Economics. Throughout college, she interned at several regenerative nonprofit farms and fell in love with the environmental nonprofit world.

Upon graduating, she landed her first AmeriCorps position with the University of Hawai’i Maui College where she focused on campus and county-wide food security efforts. Olivia is eager to apply her knowledge of food systems to her work at MountainTrue as the new Sustainable Agriculture AmeriCorps Member. She is excited to keep learning and to become better acquainted with both the nature and community of the Western North Carolinas.
