Olivia White

Community project coordinator

After moving back to her hometown of Port Rexton with a completed Bachelor in Business Administration (Honours) and Certificate in Public Policy (Urban and Regional Policy) from Memorial University, Olivia experienced first-hand the housing barriers faced on the peninsula. Her concern over the future of Port Rexton and surrounding area led to the creation of Otter Housing Association. Her passion for her hometown and its future, accompanied with her experience in the tourism industry, has led to her devotion to sustainable rural development.
