Hi! My name is Alaina Oliva, and I was born in Zachary, Louisiana. My family moved to Cary, North Carolina when I was just four years old, and I have remained in this area for the last 56 years. I began as a Bridge Educational Therapist in August 2022 after 23 years of teaching at Cary Christian School. Recently, the Lord has graciously led me to the full-time position of Bridge Administrative Coordinator beginning September 2023. I attended Wake Technical Community College and earned an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband, Jorge, and I share a home with my daughter, son-in-law, two sweet grandchildren, and four dogs. I also have a son and daughter-in-law who live in Georgia.
What I am doing on a perfect weekend evening.
On a perfect weekend evening, I am sitting with Jorge outside enjoying the lovely pond view, breeze, and chimes.
Interesting fact about you.
Before combining households, we lived on a little horse farm outside of town. In addition to the dogs and barn cats, I had two horses and provided boarding for two additional horses.
What do you do when you are not at Lifeline?
I love to sing and am committed to choir rehearsals for Sunday mornings as well as special music concerts throughout the year. I am blessed to be able to see to the needs of my elderly mother as well as my grandchildren when needed.
One of my favorite scripture verses is Psalm 121:1-2 “I lift my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”
