Hi, I’m Olivia. I’m a linguist by training and technologist by trade, working with all things Applied AI. I’m passionate about asking challenging questions and then working with diverse teams to figure out the solution.

Currently, I’m a Senior Conversational Designer for Quiq in Applied AI Engineering, where I design, build, and maintain LLM-powered agents and automations across a variety of verticals. My approach is two-pronged: I figure out what kinds of automations the client needs, and then what sort of things our product needs to do. Then I bring the two together.

I received my PhD from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Colorado Boulder. In my free time, you can find me hiking the Cascade mountains in the summer, skiing the Rockies in the winter, and fishing Puget Sound all year round.
