Olivia uses her skills as a writer, strategic thinker, and creator to effect change in New York City and beyond.

Before re-joining GSG (where she interned in 2018), Olivia completed the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs, a nine-month, full-time leadership development program. As a Coro Fellow, Olivia learned to adapt to many different workplaces and sectors as she completed five month-long work placements at the New York City Mayor’s Office, La Colmena, Industry City, Center for Court Innovation, and Kasirer.
