Olivia is a delightful & insightful young woman who has overcome a lot in her 20 years. She wasn't supposed to live through the encephalitis that attacked her small 2 week old body and the doctors sent her parents home with her with a very uncertain prognosis. As the months went by it was obvious that Olivia was bright and alert but what took a little longer to unfold was her very dramatic physical limitations. Olivia currently communicates on a speech device that she used for doing all her school work- she recently graduated with a certificate from Ardry Kelly High School in Charlotte. She is planning to take classes at CPCC in the future & loves to be active in the community. She attends an inner city church- Restoring Place- that her parents pastor where she loves to share her immense love for people & bright smile. Olivia also uses a power chair that she accesses with her head. She works exceptionally hard at whatever she puts her mind to & is looking forward to helping train her dog BRAGG. She is thrilled at the independence that having a service dog will potentially bring her.
