Olivia produces survey instruments, conducts surveys and runs predictive modeling for both political and commercial clients. Alongside our in-house tools, she utilizes Google Cloud, SQL, R, and Python to cut relevant universes and produce data visualizations. She is a trailblazer, consistently volunteering to test new methods and refining processes. Prior to joining Øptimus full-time after graduating from college, Olivia interned at Øptimus for two summers, and is now entering her third political cycle with us.

Olivia graduated from Wake Forest University with a Bachelor’s in Political Science. She is originally from Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, a fact that she is prouder of than she probably should be. When she’s not running models or predicting elections, Olivia enjoys being a restaurant and bar connoisseur, reading many a novels on her commute, traveling, and making her neighborhood a better place.
