Before moving to North Carolina, Olivia has spent most of her time living in Michigan. She graduated with her BS from the University of Michigan in 2020, and graduated with her MS from Northern Michigan University in 2023. She loves working with & learning about all things plants and invertebrates. Being from the north country, she holds a particular affinity for conifers, and she loves the ecological value and beauty they hold. She is thrilled to be a part of HRI for the year. In her spare time, Olivia enjoys outdoor sports like hiking and skiing, and indoor hobbies like puzzling and crocheting.
