Olivia Sauvageot is the Marketing and Communications Graduate Assistant for the Smith Outdoor Economic Development Collaborative, where she focuses on marketing and communication efforts for Ascend WV. She is currently earning her M.S. in the Integrated Marketing and Communications program through the Reed College of Media at WVU. The landscape of West Virginia brings her both peace and a sense of childlike curiosity, and her work is devoted to introducing others to the state she loves so much. On evenings and weekends, you can catch her checking under rocks in creeks, hiking, and trying whatever outdoor adventure falls in her lap. Olivia also enjoys getting artsy! She is currently working on sewing, pyrography, and stained glass, and hopes to learn wood carving next.
