Olivia Anderson
Clinic Escort Coordinator

Olivia Anderson’s passion for people and humanitarian advocacy began in the Pacific Northwest, where she grew up just south of the Canadian border. Olivia’s feminist career was sparked by departing from a restrictive and conservative household at the age of 16, where she then found joy and took solace in helping others. Olivia’s scope of activism ranges from volunteering at animal shelters to organizing childhood literacy programs. In 2016 she moved to New Orleans to pursue a career in Human Resources, where she currently serves as a compassionate liaison between senior management and staff members dealing with a startling amount of hardship and trauma. It was also in New Orleans where she found her niche volunteering as a clinic escort with NOAF, and she is eager to begin an exciting new chapter serving the women of Louisiana as Clinic Escort Coordinator. When she isn’t on an airplane, Olivia’s passions include cultivating orchids, cooking up veggie dinners with her friends, snuggling with her luxuriously fat tabby cat, and hot sauce.
