Olivia Biggs has more than 15 years of child and family service experience in Nebraska. She graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science in Education and Human Sciences in 2005. Prior to joining the nonprofit sector, she worked for the State of Nebraska in various roles within Child Protection & Safety including her most recent role as the statewide Adoption Policy Program Specialist where she gave guidance and technical assistance to frontline teams and executive leadership. While also in this role, she advocated and co-led the statewide initiative to provide the National Adoption Competency Mental Health Training to child welfare specialists and contracted service providers. Today, she is the Innovation Coordinator at NCHS, working closely with the Chief Program Officer and Program Directors to integrate Mobility Mentoring into all programs within the agency. The expertise she has with integrating models into service delivery helped create a framework that can be used with other curriculums resulting in implementation success. NCHS is a nonprofit agency that provides support for families, children, kinship caregivers, grandparents, adoptive families, and foster parents with access to community resources, support groups, and ongoing educational opportunities. When she is away from work, she enjoys making memories with family and playing golf when time allows.
