Coming off a terrific 2018 season which included winning the Geelong Falcons Best & Fairest, playing for Vic Country, and being named both as an All Australian and in the TAC Cup Team of the Year, there was little Olivia didn’t achieve in the season. On the back of this great momentum, Olivia also featured in the Geelong VFLW maiden Grand Final appearance against Box Hill which was a huge achievement as a junior.

Therefore to no surprise, Geelong swooped in the AFLW Draft to pick her up where she continued to make an impact around the club. Continually driving the standard amongst her young team mates, Olivia had a terrific debut AFLW season which included a Rising Star Nomination and finishing Runner Up in the Best & Fairest.

The second youngest of five sisters, Olivia grew up down the Surf Coast where she attended Sacred Heart College, whilst playing her footy for St Mary’s.
