Olivia joined ABA in December 2018 and is our Communications and Campaigns Coordinator, working on campaigns such as Anti-Bullying Week, as well as policy and communications.
Before joining ABA Olivia worked for two and a half years within the Council for Disabled Children supporting the Information, Advice, and Support Services Network with national training events, conferences, and marketing and communications.
Olivia completed the Graduate Diploma in Law with the intention of becoming a lawyer, however, she chose a different path for effecting change. What drives Olivia is her passion for equal rights in all regards, and hopes to do her best at creating and maintaining an equal, fair, and understanding society. Outside of work Olivia campaigns for Amnesty International, Green Peace, and Animal Aid, and on LGTBQIA+ issues.
Fun fact: Olivia assisted in the first event of World’s Biggest Waterslide held by the New Zealand mental health charity Live More Awesome and had a go!
