Olivia is a fourth year human kinetics student at St. Francis Xavier university in Nova Scotia. She has competed in track and field at city-wide, regional, provincial, and national competitions throughout her career from elementary school to university. Specializing in hurdles through high school, in university she expanded her event expertise to compete in multi-event disciplines; doing heptathlons in the summer with NCTFC, and pentathlons in the winter with her university’s varsity team. After two podium finishes at Atlantic Championships in the pentathlon in her first two years as a varsity athlete, she has now decided to focus on other sporting interests, but will be staying involved with the sport of track and field as a coach. Olivia has experience instructing/coaching both swimming and skating, as well as experience mentoring athletes in the sport of track and field through volunteer positions at both elementary and high schools.
