My name is… Olivia

Job Title… Senior Instructor

Original Country… I am a Kiwi living locally

Specialising in… Kayaking, Flying Fox and the Climbing Wall

Previous Experience… I’ve had lots of different hospitality jobs around NZ, but I have realised that my passion is teaching children in the outdoors, helping them break through on activities. You will most likely find me at the Climbing Wall or playing the piano at the Lodge. When I am not at Lakewood Lodge, I go exploring the country or I go and do anything creative.

Why I love Lakewood… I love being outdoors and teaching children new and fun skills. I love watching people thrive.
