Director of Communications
Horizon Foundation

Every aspect of Olivia Doherty’s life is approached with purpose and passion. As director of communications for the Horizon Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to making healthy living easier for residents of Howard County, she leads the marketing and communications strategies that help drive healthy behavior changes and policy changes.

In previous roles, she worked as an advocate for education, environmental, workforce development, health and election policy issues. Her career and volunteer efforts garnered attention to important issues, such as human trafficking. As an executive board member of FAIR Girls, an international anti-trafficking nonprofit, she was instrumental in getting major publications to cover the stories of two human trafficking survivors.

In all the work that she does, Doherty does it for the greater common good.

“With everything that she does, Olivia works closely and collaboratively with colleagues and partners. Her work shows that she has a particular passion for helping nonprofits move their missions forward,” says Dawn Stoltzfus, vice president at the Hatcher Group.
