Olivia once backpacked 102 miles over the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming.
After four years of soaking up everything Boulder, Colorado had to offer, Olivia graduated from the University of Colorado as an environmental studies major with a minor in ecology and evolutionary biology. When she wasn't hitting the slopes or trails, she played for the CU Women’s Lacrosse team and helped them get two National Tournament appearances. Olivia’s background is varied and includes projects ranging from monitoring the effects of ocean acidification on Puget Sound shellfish to connecting Australian decision-makers with the Australian public regarding coal port expansion along the Great Barrier Reef. She thrives on problem solving, conflict resolution and generating sustainable solutions. In her free time Olivia can be found on the coast, in the mountains, on the back of a horse or dancing to live music.
