Olivia has been teaching, coaching, and performing improv since 2010. She was educated at the world-famous UCB, PIT, and Magnet theaters in New York City, where she's also performed numerous times. She is a former member of the off-Broadway musical improv team The Proverbial Loons, and she is one-half of the two-person indie improv team Tony Danza's Thought-A-Day Calendar. She currently serves as a resident improv trainer at NYU, Sarah Lawrence College, and the national nonprofit All Stars Project, and uses improv as a core teaching methodology in all of her pedagogical work.
Since 2013, Olivia has taught and coached St. John's University's hilarious student improv team, the Bad Astronauts. The Bad Astronauts produce 3-4 shows per year on campus, and perform at improv theatres all over New York City. Olivia also brings the team to NYU every year for an intercollegiate workshop on using improv as a tool for conflict resolution.
