Olivia is currently serving at the Organic Growers School in Asheville in the role of Education Associate. She earned her Bachelor’s of Social Work from East Tennessee State University in 2016. After completing a year of service in Glasgow, Scotland, through the Young Adult Volunteer program, Olivia returned to East Tennessee to help develop and lead programming for an inclusive college ministry. She has since held a variety of positions in the social work field.
Olivia was motivated to join the OGS team by her interest in the connection between human and environmental flourishing. She hopes to learn some of the practical aspects of non-profit leadership and organic gardening, so that she can apply these skills to her continued work with individuals and communities.
Outside of work, Olivia enjoys soaking up as much time in nature as possible, trying out new recipes, and occasionally bringing her cat, Harvey, along for the adventure.
