Olivia embarked on her career in January 2005 as a Medical Administrator. In a chance meeting two years later with a Project Manager in Construction Olivia’s passion for procurement and her knowledge of construction through her father being in the industry were combined, and she entered the Property Sector as a Procurement Administrator for Thiess QLD. Since then she has worked across multiple sectors including Mining, Civil, Education, Residential and Commercial on high profile jobs such as Lake Lindsay Coal Mine Facility, Boggo Road Busway, BER Programme Rollout and Townsville Wastewater Upgrade Project. She now heads up the Contracts Administration team on 38 Wharf Street Student Accommodation, for Hutchinson Builders. Olivia lists her single biggest challenge and motivation in life as solely raising and setting an example for her now 19 year old daughter, all while embarking on a career in the Construction Industry.
