Born and raised in New Zealand, Olivia has been a performer from a young age. Following in her sister's footsteps, she began learning tap dancing at four years old and eventually stumbled into acting three years later. Over the years, she appeared in both guest and supporting roles in various local and international screen productions in New Zealand, including a small speaking part in Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers". Years later, she would eventually land the part of teenage sweetheart Tuesday Warner on "Shortland Street", appearing in its 2007 and 2008 seasons. After graduating from secondary school, she landed the role of teen genius Dr. K on "Power Rangers RPM" in 2009.
Following this, Olivia continued landing parts in hit New Zealand shows like "The Almighty Johnsons" (2011) and "Underbelly NZ: Land of the Long Green Cloud" (2011). She also began performing on stage professionally, having appeared in major New Zealand productions of works like William Shakespeare's "Othello" as Emilia (2011) and a musical adaptation of "The Wizard of Oz" as Dorothy (2011).
After finishing "The Wizard of Oz", Olivia moved to Los Angeles, CA to film the independent horror film "Blood Punch" (2013), which premiered at the 20th annual Austin Film Festival and received an Audience Award. Since then, she has appeared in several smaller screen productions and has even done voiceover work, narrating Megan McCafferty's "Jessica Darling's It List" (2013) and the interactive storybook "My Friend Barlow" (2013).
In November 2013, Olivia returned to New Zealand to begin rehearsals for the innovative stage play "360: A Theatre of Recollections" (2014), where she reprised her role as the Sister to critical acclaim. She has also appeared in the New Zealand miniseries "When We Go To War" (2015) which chronicles New Zealand's involvement in World War I, along with the web series "Jiwi's Machines" (2015). She has also produced her own web series entitled "Dancing in Small Spaces" (2014 - 2015).
Olivia can be seen in the jointly-produced NZ/Australian show "800 Words" (2015) as Siouxsie McNamara, the daughter of plucky realtor Monty (Jonathan Brough).
Olivia lives in Auckland and has been enrolled in university majoring in speech therapy, while working in commercial dance and continuing her acting and dancing pursuits. She had gotten married to Milo Cawthorne (Ziggy from "Power Rangers RPM") in 2013, but the couple have since parted ways.
