Olivia Loy

(she, her, hers)

Content Strategist & Media Writer

Olivia is passionate about finding creative solutions to communications and process challenges and also about coaching others. In the education space, she is most compelled by the journeys of foster youth and underserved students and strives to help them find their strength, voice, and direction.

Olivia has more than 20 years of experience in communications, community management, and journalism, including five years at a nonprofit organization with deep roots in the California Community College system. Here, she served as the Director of Communications and helped the organization thrive in times of uncertainty including transforming many communications platforms in concept and in level of engagement, and through helping the organization more than quadruple its positive press wins, including national press.

Her experience over the course of her career working with a vast array of personality types, beliefs and backgrounds, and in trying to navigate a highly polarized climate, has led her to believe that compassion, open-mindedness, and a willingness to listen are the keys to healing and positive change.

I dream of going to...

An outdoor, Parisian cafe to drink espresso and eat a croissant.

My pets are...

Plants.

The strangest thing in my refrigerator is...

Red curry paste.
