Olivia admires the quote by Forest Witcraft: “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” She continued her education at Troy University, graduating in 2017 with her M.S. in nursing and becoming a board-certified Nurse Practitioner. She is a member of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
