Kia Ora, my name is Olivia.
I am from the sunny Hawke’s Bay. I love to cook, swim and everything creative. I am currently completing my Postgraduate Diploma in Primary School Teaching.
In 2011 I travelled to America and worked as a carer for children and adults with Cerebral Palsy for 4 months, I absolutely loved my time there and that has now drawn me towards a career in a similar field. I am extremely responsible when it comes to the care of children. I enjoy watching them develop, learn and play while being able to provide an educational environment.
I ensure children are comfortable and safe, I have had experience in caring for adults and children with disabilities which is something I am passionate about.
My experience includes working full time, one on one for 4 months with people (both male and female) with Cerebral Palsy, Coached netball teams – aged 13-15, babysitting from ages 1-15 both during the day and evening and had responsibilities including dinners, bathing and school pickups.
I am adaptable, creative and responsible. Prior to this I have also completed a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Event management, worked in award winning wineries and most recently within the Real Estate industry.
I look forward to meeting you.
