Olivia has lived in Frederick County for 19 years. She attended Orchard Grove Elementary, Ballenger Creek and Crestwood Middle, and graduated from Frederick High School in 2009. After graduation, she attended FCC for 2 semesters before transitioning from part-time to full-time employment.
She currently lives in Middletown with her husband. After three years of marriage, they are ready to start a family, which is one of the reasons why she’s running for the Board of Education. Seeing how parents and children have been stifled by FCPS recently this past year, she’d like to be in a position to uphold parents’ rights.
“I manage a small business,” Olivia says, “so I have experience in customer service. As a Board member, I’d view parents and students as customers to serve. To me, ‘public servant’ is more than just a phrase. It’s how I’d think of myself in that role.”
“We need to let kids be kids,” she believes, “while instilling in them a good work ethic instead of a sense of entitlement. We need to remove the politics and get back to basics, with solid curricula that prepare them to succeed.”
