Olivia is a human trafficking survivor who is no stranger to the systemic barriers that stand in the way of recovery. She was arrested on many occasions for crimes connected to her victimization. Both during and after her release from jail, Olivia worked with local, state and federal authorities to prosecute her traffickers. Each time she left jail, she found herself even more vulnerable to addiction and trafficking. That is, until she found Survivor Ventures. One of Survivor Venture’s first Survivor to Entrepreneur (S2E) program graduates, Olivia was finally able to turn her life around.
With a decade of entrepreneurial experience gained formally in store management and customer service positions, as well as informally during her victimization, Olivia is uniquely suited to helping Survivor Ventures achieve our mission. She helps survivors meet their unique personal and professional goals while maintaining a productive and efficient work environment for SV small business partners.
She holds a degree from Cape Cod Community College and trained as a glass cutter. When she is not chatting with her adorable daughter or spending time with her adoring fiancé, Olivia bravely advocates for criminal record relief for Virginia-based victims of human trafficking.
