How I can help You

How can you inspire people to engage in conservation and actively contribute to preserving the natural environment?

By telling a story.

👋 Hey, I’m Olivia and I'm here to help you tell your story.

Before I go any further, it has been my passion to honor and preserve the ocean for as long as I can remember. Recently, I have begun exploring how I can use storytelling and communication to inspire people to conserve the natural world. 

For the past 4 years, I have used my skills in communication and storytelling to captivate people and inspire action.

In my current job, I use my skillset in telling stories on a daily basis. That expertise in written communication has helped kickstart the startup for which I work by increasing its SEO visibility significantly within my first 4 months on the job. 

More importantly, though, I am a life-long learner. Through an intense year-long experience at Praxis, a business apprenticeship program, I have greatly expanded my knowledge of how to learn quickly and add value wherever I work. 

Both inside my work and within independent projects I am continuing to explore storytelling, marketing, and communications by reading books, building websites, connecting with experts, and creating videos

Below are some projects and portfolios that I have compiled related to the primary duties and responsibilities that this role requires. 

Project Management and Coordination

Cross-Department Collaboration:

Led a collaborative effort between internal sales and marketing teams to develop and implement a strategic approach to content creation to increase SEO visibility ensuring seamless communication, task delegation, and timely delivery.

Also, check out this video to learn how I am using Miro, a project and task management tool, to stay on top of my work and to continue providing value. 


Digital Storytelling:

Created a compelling digital narrative strategy, integrating multimedia elements (interactive visuals and immersive content) and improving search optimization, which resulted in an enhanced user experience and strengthened connection with the brand's narrative.
