About Me

My name is Olivia, and I am 44 years old.  I live in the Columbus, Ohio, area, and my most treasured roles in life are wife and mom.  I graduated from Morehead State University in Kentucky with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education, and I’ve been married to my supportive best friend for almost 20 years.  We have three sons who I home school.  I currently pastor people, lead worship, and teach in our local church as a lay-leader, and I have been pastoring, training, mentoring, and serving in various capacities in the church since my teen years.  My husband and I write and record music, and I love cooking and traveling to any place possible.

I am a graduate of the School of Sustainable Faith – a 2-year program within the Vineyard Church movement which trains and equips pastors and leaders in spiritual direction – with a complete certification as a Spiritual Director.  I’ve officially been spiritual directing for 2 1/2 years now, but unofficially for many more.  The ministry of spiritual direction has monumentally enriched my relationship with God, and my deep hope is for all Christians to experience it on a regular basis.
