“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury

Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Olivia loves traveling anywhere and everywhere, whether writing, learning new languages, eating good food, or simply traveling. While earning her bachelor’s degrees in communication and French, Olivia took to Europe and spent a year studying in Aix-en-Provence, France; she loved it so much that she returned to France upon graduation to teach English to high school students. Olivia now travels whenever she has the chance, and works internationally with Canadian organizations to help adults reach their continuing education goals.
