Biography

After graduating from Sheffield University with a journalism degree, Olivia kicked off her career with stints on local and regional newspapers. 
Much to her friends' amusement, her first celebrity interview was with Jimmy Savile in 2004. 

She joined Farmers Guardian's London team in 2011 and worked her way up the ranks to become news and business editor in 2016. 

Now living in the south, she travels home to her beloved Yorkshire whenever she gets the chance and when she can't, drinks copious amounts of Yorkshire tea to make up for it. 

In addition to her love for small dogs (and gin), Olivia also enjoys cooking and once baked a three-tier wedding cake for her friend's nuptials. However, the process was so stressful she said it was doubtful she would ever do this again.
