Olivia Brown is the Labor Miami Fellow, Senior Associate at the Miami Foundation.  Labor Miami is Miami’s premier career development resource – providing students, jobseekers, entrepreneurs, and employers with access to the tools, training, and information they need to build successful careers in industries that are powering Miami’s growing economy.  Olivia is a Miami native and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Florida and a Master’s in Public Health from Columbia University.  


Prior to joining the Foundation, Olivia worked on environmental justice campaigns for a national organization while completing her Master’s degree.  Her love for people and community building allowed her to create and lead several nonprofit organizations, travel to Indonesia providing mental health care, and participate in Community Based Participatory Research projects that aided disaster relief in San Juan, Puerto Rico and activated community members in East Harlem around policy changes.


Olivia’s passions for justice, health, and wealth building guide her commitment to Labor Miami and workforce and community development at large.
