Olivia was born in Mississauga and moved to North Bay at only two days old. She only recently moved to Ottawa two years ago for school. Since a young age, she has always been passionate about working with children. This passion grew stronger during her high school Co-op at the One Kids Place in North Bay where she had the chance to work alongside a variety of therapists helping children with different needs. During this time, she also became a swim instructor, where she had the chance to engage with many children and teach them about her passion of swimming. Since then, Olivia has been a babysitter on her time off and strives to create a safe and enjoyable environment for all the families she works for.
Olivia is a recent graduate from the Occupational Therapy Assistant/Physiotherapy Assistant program at Algonquin College. During this program, Olivia had the opportunity to attend two placements, her first at the Queensway Carleton Hospital on the A3 Medicine Unit and the second here at the Play On Pediatric Therapy Clinic. Both placements helped expand her knowledge and get hands-on experience in her field. Olivia is very excited to fulfill her life long passion of working with children.
