Olivia was inspired to join Sanneh because of its mission to maintain and strengthen diverse and underserved communities.
"It's always been a passion of mine to help communities. I've always believed that all children should have access to all opportunities, to have experiences and try different things out. Being able to work in this position within an organization that prioritizes bringing families from the community in to get services is something I fully believe in and want to be a part of."
Olivia’s friends, family, and colleagues appreciate her tenacity, grit, resilience, integrity, and character. She is known to be an effective and intentional team player with excellent communication skills. Olivia is an individual who is not afraid of going the extra mile and gives 110% of her effort to her passions.
In her free time, Olivia works out a lot on her Peloton. She also coaches AAU basketball, loves to read, and travel. Her last trip was to Jamaica for her friend's wedding and, she enjoyed it immensely. When circumstances get better, Olivia is hoping to start traveling internationally again.
