Olivia says she knows there is a reason why God placed her here at FUMCFW. She first came to the church as a client of the Methodist Justice Ministry as she was seeking guardianship of her siblings for whom she had been caring. After she received help, Olivia was introduced to the Business Office staff and offered a job as their administrative assistant.
Since she enjoys being organized, Olivia’s favorite part of the job is using her organizational skills to assist the “awesome team” she works with here. “It is my passion to help people,” Olivia exclaims. “From the moment I stepped into the church, I knew that everyone here shares that same passion.”
Olivia graduated from Granbury High School, and she is currently attending Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus where she is pursuing a degree in Nursing. She hopes to one day become a traveling nurse so she can fulfill her dreams of traveling the world as a missionary while also caring for people in need.
Throughout her life, Olivia’s journey has always been linked to helping other people, but she just never saw that as serving them. As she’s grown to know herself better, she’s discovered that she has a huge heart that wants what’s best for her and for others. Olivia now lives to serve, and that brings her great fulfillment. “The church has been such a blessing in my life,” she adds. “I am so happy to get the opportunity to pay it forward through my work.”
When she’s not working, Olivia enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, exploring, napping, and trying new foods. She lives in Weatherford with her boyfriend, Ryan; her three younger siblings, Matthew, Caylin, and Allison; and their dog, Bruce. They love going on outdoor family adventures whenever they get the chance.
