Creativity and attention to detail are the core values that drive Olivia to strive for service excellence.

At home, Olivia enjoys painting (both watercolor and acrylic), watching bad Rom-Coms, and spending time with her overzealous Yorkie, Winston. She hopes to one day look back on a life well lived, both personally and professionally.
