Olivia Orvis-Bowers is currently an Administrative Coordinator with the City of Brampton having just finished working with the City of Mississauga in various administrative roles for the past 7 years. Olivia has excelled in finding her next level of success and at the age of 23, she has earned positions that would have normally taken much longer to achieve.
Born and raised in Mississauga, Olivia started working for government at the age of 16, which fostered her love to serve communities, and shaped the foundation for her career in the public service. When Olivia was accepted into four post secondary programs, she was unable to decide which one she wanted to pursue and by the time she made a decision the only offer than didn’t expire was in accounting. She would later switch her focus to Management Studies where she has recently graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce from Humber College. She is now looking to pursue her Masters in the next two years.
Among many other skills and experiences, Olivia studied abroad for a semester in Scotland, was a free lance editor for UpWork, volunteers with the SPCA and House Cat Rescue, is a well versed communicator, and most importantly an avid dad joke enthusiast.
On this episode we talk about how Olivia strives to avoid complacency by seeking out the next level of success, why she decided to leave one municipal giant for another, how she worked one shift at Tommy Hilfiger then left, and we also simulate the popular channel “All Def” by diving into some pretty cringe worthy dad jokes.
