Features & Copy Editor
Olivia’s first day as an editorial assistant happened exactly a week after she graduated cum laude from De La Salle University with a degree in Literature. The year was 2014 and that stint for a local youth culture magazine and celebrity style website honed Olivia’s skills in writing for both print and digital media. In 2015, she joined the Inquirer Group of Companies as part of the pioneer editorial board of Preen.ph. Here, she further sharpened her online content creation instincts by writing breaking news stories and various features plus producing different shoots. She was also a contributing writer to Inquirer’s sister brands including Scout, Northern Living, Southern Living, and Inquirer RED. As the Features & Copy Editor of Lifestyle.INQ, she follows through her eagerness to discover only the best in beauty, travel, and food with that off-the-cuff perspective.
