Olivia graduated at Nottingham Trent University with an Equine Psychology and Sports Science BSc (Hons) in 2015. Following graduation, she spent 1 year working within a leading pet supply retailer as a customer advisor, then 1 year in a post graduate position as a pest control technician.

With some difficult changes in her life and the desire to pursue a career within the equine industry, Olivia started up her own horse care company in 2017, where she provides both holiday and sickness cover to both commercial and private yards across the Midlands.  Olivia wanted to progress her business and did so by studying with The College of Animal Physiotherapy towards an Equine Sports Massage qualification, she completed her studies in November 2017 and was awarded a Distinction.  Olivia now provides both services as part of her small business “Olivia’s Horse Care” and has retained her regular customers for the duration.

Olivia was later introduced to SyncThermology when both her horse ‘Nemo’ and her friend's ‘Lacey’ were both under investigation by Lucinda Tricehurst (Equine Vet and Point to Point rider).  Olivia has always had an interest in Equine Anatomy and Physiology and felt that imaging would be a great addition to the services she currently provides to her clients.

Olivia has also dabbled into the world of dog training, having worked within a research establishment for canine nutrition whilst running her own business.  She has recently rescued a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called ‘Quest’ and lives with him together with her two ferrets ‘Alfie’ and ‘Bear’ in Leicestershire.

Olivia is an advocate for non-ridden Equines and whilst her horse ‘Nemo’ can be ridden; she mostly enjoys learning about alternative holistic ways of training, that is mindful of the physiological and psychological impact it has on her horse’s wellbeing.  She is currently retraining her horse to ride in a bit-less bridle and is having a go at equine agility!

When Olivia is not enjoying her animals, she is often found working on her cars or taking part on track days with her older brother Owen.
