WILLITS NEWS -- Although born in the Bay Area, Olivia Griffin moved to Willits when she was four years old and lived out her childhood in our friendly city, before graduating from Willits Charter School in 2004. Shortly thereafter, Griffin moved to San Francisco to attend San Francisco State University where she studied dance, costume design and fashion design as a triple-major. These days, Griffin is using her sewing skills to make fabric face masks to help nursing homes in her new hometown of Lousiville, Kentucky, combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
