Olivia West is the co-founder and President of West Advisory Group. She and her husband started the organization in 2007 because there were not many organizations teaching financial literacy to youth in their community. Her passion for educating individuals in the area of personal finance is the fuel behind West Advisory Group. Olivia’s vision is to empower those she encounters with the knowledge to achieve their goals and realize financial independence. Olivia West has been called upon to conduct workshops at numerous conferences throughout the country.
In less than ten years after graduation, Olivia and her husband Norman managed to pay off all of their student loan debt, credit card debt, car loans, personal loans, and soon to pay off their home! Olivia is the co-author of a newly released book “Debt Free at 33”.
