Hi! I’m Olivia

Why hello dear readers! My name is Olivia and I am fresh to adulthood. Or at least if we’re looking strictly at my Skepchick life I am. I’ve been writing over at Teen Skepchick for about three years now, but as a 22 year old I was starting to get a little out of the age range for teen. And so here I am, now a fully fledged Skepchick! Huzzah! If you haven’t been following my work over in teenland, I’ll just tell you a bit about myself.

I’ve been running a blog at for about six months now, and I’d love it if you all checked it out. I write about mental health, feminism, skepticism, media, education, philanthropy, nonprofits, and whatever else floats my boat. These are the kinds of topics you’re likely to see me post about here as well. I have an eating disorder, as well as diagnosed depression and generalized anxiety, so those are themes in my writing. I also am particularly interested in issues of consent, relationships, and healthy male/female relationships.

I also write for CFI On Campus and have done some writing for The Fementalists, The Quail Pipe, and Mental Health Talk. I have a degree in philosophy and religion, I’m a swing dancer and a rock climber, and I currently work in the nonprofit world. I’m super excited to get to know y’all as I write here more! Happy skepticizing!


Olivia is a giant pile of nerd who tends to freak out about linguistic prescriptivism, gender roles, and discrimination against the mentally ill. By day she writes things for the Autism Society of Minnesota, and by night she writes things everywhere else. Check out her ongoing screeds against jerkbrains at
