My name is… Olivia Graves

Job Title… Instructor

Original Country… I am a Kiwi living locally

Specialising in… Kayaking, Flying Fox and the Climbing Wall

Previous Experience… I love children and as a house leader at school, really enjoyed leading people in games and instructing them patiently. I love the outdoors and all the animals at the lodge. Love tramping, climbing, going to the beach and helping all our visitors achieve breakthroughs on activities. You will most likely find me at the climbing wall or playing the piano in the lodge. When I’m not at Lakewood I love spending time with all my own animals, like my pet pig, Dot. I love art, and my dream is to be a graphic designer one day.

Why I love Lakewood… I love being outdoors and teaching people – at Lakewood I get to do both! Have made some great friends there too so it’s like being part of an extended family.

My Favourite Movie… Titanic – that scene at the front of the boat is the best scene EVER

Favourite Lakewood Lodge Animal… Betty the goat chasing Kevin the chicken

Favourite Food at the lodge… Roast chicken pieces

Favourite Lakewood Lodge Disco song… San Frandisco

Favourite Activity to Instruct… Climbing Wall!
