Olivia is a sustainable living advocate working in the often less sustainable corporate world. While studying business at university, she gained a greater understanding about how the for-profit world can both shape and protect the natural world as well as be its biggest threat. She felt compelled to work towards spreading the environmental message from within big companies, to raise awareness and change perceptions.
Olivia has always felt most at home when near the sea and has sailed in Australia.
Olivia is very excited to be taking part in eXXpedition Leg 9, collaborating with other inspirational (and incredibly knowledgable) women to raise awareness of how how visible and invisible plastic pollution is impacting upon the health of our oceans and ourselves. Equally Olivia is keen to increase her own technical knowledge of plastic pollution to practicially inform decision making on how to make it stop.
