Olivia grew up in the suburbs of Massachusetts and wandered into the mountains as soon as she could. She found herself in Portland, Oregon to attend Reed College. She knew that she wanted to explore the world of outdoor education right away, and began as an assistant instructor at the Colorado Outward Bound School after college. She has since spent time guiding for various outdoor organizations like Naturalists at Large, Red Rocks Community College, and Open Sky Wilderness Therapy. Olivia is thrilled to take her learnings to HMI Gap, and continue to learn and grow even more!
