Olivia grew up in the Midwest, and after receiving a B.A. in Psychology from Northern Illinois University, she spent the next 15 years married to her first husband who was in the Air Force, during which time they lived in many different locations (from Florida to Alaska and many places in between) and had many adventures. Olivia is the proud mother of two spunky spirited children; Laina and Landon. In 2018; looking for a place to put down roots, she relocated to North Carolina with her husband Chris and children. She helps people as an insurance agent and is also the owner of a natural skin care company: Batholution. She loves to cook, embarrass her children and hike to waterfalls. Olivia is an unabashed reader in the “self-help” genre and lover of people. She became involved with Homes for Youth out of a passion for children who are in need of stability, love and support and hopes to make a difference in the lives she touches there.
