Meet Olivia

May 8, 2018 / Chicago

This year, Mother’s Day came early for driver-partner, Olivia. Olivia has been driving with Uber for nine months and proudly displays her ultrasound photo on the dashboard of her car to remind herself why she is driving.

Olivia was originally due to give birth in June, but her daughter London, had other plans for her mom. Olivia welcomed baby London just a few weeks before Mother’s Day and she has been growing stronger by the day.

When asked what she has loved most about being a new mother, Olivia said “I just love the joy and purpose it brings to my life. There’s no other feeling like it.” She added that she hopes to teach her daughter to love, laugh, enjoy everything that life has to offer – the good, the bad and the ugly.

She also hopes to teach her to always work hard and never let anything stop her from achieving her goals. To surprise Olivia, we helped shower her with a shopping spree so that she could pick up all the essentials for the newest addition to her family.

Olivia began driving with Uber when her sister, who also drives with Uber, referred her. When asked about her experience with Uber, Olivia mentioned that she has been driving with Uber for nine months when she was encouraged by her own sister to sign up and she said it has been one of the best, life changing decisions she has ever made.
