Olivia is originally from Saint Paul, Minnesota but moved to Evanston to get her BA in Communication Studies and Political Science from Northwestern University. While there, she learned to love the area through research on voting in Chicago, feminist activism, and constant trips into the city for pho and donuts. After graduating in 2018, she came to Y.O.U. to continue to learn about the community that had become home and work to bring it to its full potential. In her free time, Olivia lifts weights, cooks, and eats her way through the Chicago restaurant scene.
