Olivia, USA Specialist
With extended family in both California and Florida, throughout her childhood Olivia enjoyed many fun-filled family trips to the USA. Having always had a desire to return to the States to continue exploring, Olivia spent a summer living near San Antonio, Texas, leading trail rides and teaching horse riding to children attending summer camp. Following these three months, Olivia embarked on a month-long road trip across California. Her passion for the Sates has led her to her career at Audley.
Olivia has a great interest in sport, being the focal point of her university studies in Cardiff. Her continuing love of horses began as a four year old and throughout her adolescent years, Olivia competed her own horses regularly.
Having recently left the 'country bumpkin' lifestyle behind in the South West, Olivia is very much looking forward to living the fast-paced lifestyle in London but will miss the country pubs, and her two springer spaniels.
I'll never forget when…
I absolutely love the Californian coastline, mostly because of its wealth of sea life, so when I was given the opportunity to kayak up the coastline from Santa Barbara, I was delighted. About 40 minutes into our guided tour, a pod of dolphins swam right next to my kayak — giving me a complete feeling of serenity.
