Welcome Olivia Naves!

We are thrilled to welcome Olivia Naves to the team as the Corporate and Foundations Grants Associate!

Olivia works across Sustainable Conservation to advance the organization’s corporate and foundation relationships. 

She previously worked at the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, where she provided programmatic support to the State Clearinghouse unit as well as technical assistance to government agencies working to comply with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review requirements. She has also worked at the California Strategic Growth Council, where she helped implement the agency’s communications strategy.

We believe in the power of relationships to reveal creative strategies that protect the natural resources on which we all depend. Let’s explore new ways to stick together in support of a healthy California. Connect with us!
