Meet Olivia! She earned a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Minor in Child Development at Appalachian State University May 2019 and graduated with her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Wingate University in May 2022. Olivia is recently certified in Beckman Oral protocols and enjoys putting her learnings with feeding to the test. She has always had a love for children and a strong desire to work in healthcare, so when she learned the role she could have in a child and their family’s lives as an occupational therapist, she was sold! Olivia values individuality and building genuine relationships with patients and their families. Her goal is for your child to feel seen, understood, and proud of themselves!
While pursuing her doctorate, she was able to gain experience working with kids and teenagers of all ages with varying diagnoses through her clinical rotations. Though she loves working with all ages, she has a special interest and love for the infant population.
She recently married her high school sweetheart, Ryan, and together they have two cats, Tucker and Gus, and a dog named Scottie! In her free time, Olivia loves to read, cook, have girls nights, and spend time with her family. She is thrilled to have joined the Lively Therapy team and can’t wait to meet you and your family!
