Before moving to North Carolina, Olivia spent most of her time living in Michigan. She graduated with her BS from the University of Michigan in 2020 and graduated with her MS from Northern Michigan University in 2023. She loves working with & learning about all things plants and invertebrates. In her spare time, Olivia enjoys outdoor sports like hiking and skiing, and indoor hobbies like puzzling and crocheting. Olivia will be serving this year with the Hemlock Restoration Initiative, a perfect synthesis of her areas of interest: botany, entomology, and invasive ecology!
