My name is Olivia Staton and I have grown up in Arvada, Colorado my entire life. I am a Recreation Major with a concentration in Therapeutic Recreation at Metropolitan State University of Denver; and I am also getting a Minor in Nutrition. For the past 5 years I have worked for APEX Parks and Recreation District as a Senior Lifeguard, and have enjoyed spending so much time around the water. In my free time I enjoy reading, climbing 14ers, swimming, running and traveling. I have spent 3 summers in Belarus and have visited England, Poland and Germany. I hope after graduation that I will have the opportunity to learn a new language and do more traveling, but I always want to end back in Colorado and ultimately plan on finding a career here.
