Olivia Deane

Financial Specialist


Olivia Deane graduated from Rochester University with her Bachelor of Science in Theatre with a Business Administration minor in 2016. Following graduation, she started her career as the Rochester University Box Office Manager and Administrative Assistant to the School of Humanities. In 2019, she transitioned to the Accounts Payable department at Trinity Health, where she supported AP operations for multiple hospitals and healthcare facilities around the country before becoming the trainer for the entire AP department. 

Deane began working with the University of Michigan in 2022 when she joined the SMTD Finance Team in a role that melded her love of the arts and her affinity for finance and accounts payable. She currently supports several departments around the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance with their day-to-day finance operations.

When not at work, she enjoys directing children’s theatre and cheering on the high school football team that her husband coaches. They both also look forward to their days off that they can spend with their dog, Magic.
