She has spent over 11 years in the IT/media/communication area with websites, management, and training. Her extensive background involves 30 years of entrepreneurial/retail experience in ownership, development, management, and funding.
A professional in any endeavor that was presented to her was always met with customer service in mind whether it be retail or student service. A motto long-held and lived by whether teaching or sales was “No matter what widget or information you sell, teach or collaborate, you are always in the customer service business, if not, you have no business!”
Dr. Oliver has many relatives that are and were educators, mostly in rural eastern Kentucky. Decades ago, some of them built schoolhouses for the community where there were none. Then taught in them, so education continued. Many of their students went on to be doctors, lawyers, and educators.

Dr. Oliver has owned and operated various businesses including several storefronts with an entrepreneurial mindset, developing and renovating buildings from the ground up. She is accustomed to operating all aspects of the business from funding, renovation, management, merchandiser, employment plus many other areas of owning and managing employees. All the business dealings and management along with the educational portion led to her desire to teach others personal behaviors, strategies of business methods, and how to start up a newly developing business. Life Insurance and retail sales of essential oils round out various small businesses under management. Also Recently adding an international notary service with other notary services available.
