My name is Olivia and I am your NEW Funchaser! I’ve been here for a few weeks now and am really getting to know Prince George and all the amazing people that come with it but I thought it would be nice to tell you a little bit about myself!
I was born and raised in Kamloops BC where I started out more on the creative side as an artist, dancer and soccer player. Soccer has been in my life since day one but I soon after dropped everything else and became a competitive swimmer. When high school came around I dropped swimming and got serious about volleyball, basketball, soccer, track and field and going to the gym. I was a busy teenager to say the least. After graduating I headed to Calgary Alberta where I was accepted into the Broadcasting Program at Mount Royal University. I completed my diploma, spent some time doing an internship with CTV Lethbridge and then headed off travelling for six months to Australia, Bali and Thailand. Once I was back I worked in Calgary with Corus Entertainment and part time serving/bartending. February 2018 I was SO lucky to be offered the position here in Prince George as your new FUNCHASER!
So thank you Prince George for already being so welcoming and I can’t wait to get to know it and you better. If you have any suggestions or recommendations come say hello to me at events! I am always looking for new sports teams to take part in and activities to enjoy. Lets do this thing!
