Olivia recently relocated back to Southern California after spending two years in New York City. She started swimming competitively at age 8, and was of the top age group swimmers in New Jersey as a kid, leading into her successful swimming career as a teen when moving to Northern California. In her time swimming, she earned an NCAA Division 1 swimming scholarship to swim for Washington State University her Freshman year. Her passion for helping kids grow their skills and comfort around the water began with her summer recreational league in the Bay Area, assisting kids of all ages, levels, and learning abilities. Her love for teaching continued as an adult, where just this last year, she worked with New York's legendary swim program, Asphalt Green, to help lead their swim lessons and summer swim camp. Olivia has an upbeat, positive personality, and patience with her clients, as she remembers the best swimming experiences she had growing up came from coaches just like it.
