Personal Interests

Oliver grew up in North Carolina and fell in love with the High Country at an early age. Having since spent time living in Montana, Oregon, South Carolina and Florida, his love of the North Carolina mountains and the recreational opportunities offered here drew him back to the area and to Lees-McRae. Outside of his work with the college Oliver spends his time cycling, skiing, fly fishing, hiking, and trail running.
