An Atlanta, Georgia native who grew up in McDonough, Olivia Moore joined our staff in the summer of 2022. While in High School, Olivia heard about the opportunities in the skilled trades, and already being a car enthusiast decided that her postsecondary plans would be to pursue a welding education instead of college.
While enrolled at GTS, Olivia earned multiple certifications in Flux, Mig, and Stick certifications. She went on to work for Tomco Systems where she became mobile crane operator certified and submerged arc certified. Serving on the safety committee, Olivia was also featured in the company commercial and on the cover of the company magazine.
In her personal time, Olivia enjoys traveling, car shows, and spending time with her family and friends.
She is super excited to be a part of the GTS team and is very comfortable seeking new challenges.

Understand that you still have a lot to learn, do not be discouraged by failing, and take every opportunity to learn a new skill, even if you don’t need it. Also, take care of yourself- hydrate, rest, and eat well. Make friends and your work ethic will determine how far you go!
