Olivia has only been skating 8 short months, but she has already caught the attention of OG pro skater Jonny Miller who told us we really had to see the progression of this young girl. He was right! We are pretty sure that we will be seeing a lot more of Olivia in the coming months, she just scored her first sponsor - Toyland, and we think there will be more to come!
